King David was called a man after God’s own heart. He understood God’s mercy, grace, and loving kindness. Who could deny that after reading the Psalms? But how do we explain the tragic events involving David, Bathsheba, and her loyal husband Uriah? What can we learn about ourselves in this dark narrative in the Bible? Considering this account in this message, Dr. Sproul reminds us of David’s attempt to cover his sin, and what we can learn from that low-point in his life.
All of us sin. It is part of our fallen nature. But thanks be to God that if we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins. But what does it take for us to confess? King David attempted to cover up his sin with Bathsheba by killing her husband, and by worldly standards he practically got away with it. In this message, Dr. Sproul takes us back to the moment Nathan the prophet confronted the king, and reminds us of the consequences that followed David throughout his life.
