Scripture Reading: II Samuel 12?b-1O

If ever a mortal was blessed of God, it was King David.  He sat upon the very throne which will one day be occupied by  the Lord of glory Himself. David was God's good man,  beloved and privileged above all others, the greatest of all of  God's chosen vessels surely. No other human soul has ever  enjoyed a relationship with God to equal David's. David  praised and adored his Lord, proved his great faith by word  and deed, graced his throne as did none other.

But the nature of father Adam, we have always with us!  The great king of Israel lusted after another man's wife,  satisfied that lust, murdered her husband and took the widow  (who already carried his child) to the marriage bed. Thus,  David betrayed a unity more precious to him than all his  worldly possessions; he foolishly bartered the purity of that  relationship for a temporary self-gratification in the flesh.

At what price? His reward was a tortured soul filled with  shame and regret. The Lord's own words pronounced David's  guilt to his face. "WHEREFORE HAST THOU DESPISED  THE COMMANDMENT OFTHE LORD, TO DO EVILIN HIS  SIGHT? THOU HAST KILLED URIAH THE HITTITE WITH  THE SWORD, AND HAST TAKEN HIS WIFE TO BE. THY  WIFE." David had deliberately sinned against God, and now  he must pay the price in agony and remorse. "HAVE MERCY  UPON ME, 0 GOD ... FOR I ACKNOWLEDGE MY  TRANSGRESSIONS: AND MY SIN IS EVER BEFORE ME"  (Psalms 51:1a, 3).

Once again, the shades of Eden had darkened the glow of  unity. "BEHOLD, I WAS SHAPEN IN INIQUITY; AND IN  SIN DID MY MOTHER CONCEIVE ME" (Psalms 51:5),.

How God Saves Men
Believing Christ DIED, that’s HISTORY.
Believing Christ DIED for YOU SINS and Rose again that’s SALVATION.
ead Acts 16L31 Romans 1:16, and 1. Corinthians 15:1-4
