(Read 2 Samuel 11-12)
13 Also keep back Your servant from presumptuous sins; Let them not rule over me; Then I will be blameless, And I shall be acquitted of great transgression.
3 There is no speech, nor are there words; Their voice is not heard.
11 Do not cast me away from Your presence And do not take Your Holy Spirit from me. 12 Restore to me the joy of Your salvation And sustain me with a willing spirit.
Without forgiveness a person has the feeling he has been abandoned by the Lord and loses the joy of being saved. The only way to experience happiness and God’s nearness is confessing the sins God reveals to us.
1 How blessed is he whose transgression is forgiven, Whose sin is covered!
THE PEACE/RENEWAL (6-12)
“How sad it is to have to live with the consequences of forgiven sin”
