3/14 Psalm 51:1-4
1 For the choir director: A psalm of David, regarding the time Nathan the prophet came to him after David had committed adultery with Bathsheba. Have mercy on me, O God, because of your unfailing love. Because of your great compassion, blot out the stain of my sins. 2 Wash me clean from my guilt. Purify me from my sin. 3 For I recognize my shameful deeds — they haunt me day and night. 4 Against you, and you alone, have I sinned; I have done what is evil in your sight. You will be proved right in what you say, and your judgment against me is just.
Sin is devastating and vengeful. It seeks to devour everything in and around us. It is evil to the max and will do anything necessary to seduce us, distract us and destroy us. Seek forgiveness for your sin. Do it quickly. Ask the Lord to make you sensitive to your sin. If you can’t see it ask the Lord to reveal your sin to you. Recognizing our sin and turning away from it takes the power of God in Christ. There is no other way to deal with our sin.
