2 Samuel 11-12; Psalm 51

CAUGHT (2 Samuel 11-12) 

  • Sin can start with being at the wrong place at the wrong time.
  • Our vulnerability can often come from a lack of accountability.
  • Sin can be covered temporarily by an additional sin or eternally by an unconditional Savior.
  • No amount of coverup will ever be able to protect your sin from being noticed by God.

CONVICTED (Ps. 51:1-8) 

  • There’s a difference in being sorry that you sinned and sorry that you got caught.
  • You can’t be justified by God if you are still trying to justify your sin.
  • Sometimes the most gracious act that God can do is to break the consistently wandering heart.
  • While God carries us in our brokenness, we become so accustomed to his presence that we find it difficult to stray again.

CLEANED (Ps. 51:9-19)

  • There is a forgiveness so thorough that sin’s record can be erased.
  • If there is a true profession of faith, there will be a true progression of faith.
  • Receiving grace should lead to revealing grace.
