Wednesday Nights - 6:30 PM - Sin!
For I know my transgressions,
and my sin is ever before me.
Against you, you only, have I sinned
and done what is evil in your sight,
so that you may be justified in your words
and blameless in your judgment.
Behold, I was brought forth in iniquity,
and in sin did my mother conceive me. Psalm 51:3-5
King David offers no excuses for his murderous and adulterous behavior. He knows what he has done and he knows he deserves punishment. His only recourse is to plead for mercy. Such is the case for all of us. As the apostle Paul teaches, "all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God" (Romans 3:23), and our only recourse is to plead for mercy. Sin is a powerful force, an inescapable reality. But it does not have the last word. There is mercy to be had!
