Friday: Further Thought – Conflict and Crisis — 5 Comments

  1. There are a number of good reasons why we are told this part of David's story.
    First that no matter how faithful we are to God we can fall. Or rather will fall because Satan works harder to trip those who are the most faithful so both the person and the rest of us will become disheartened..even give up hope. And that is another reason why his foibles are not kept secret..so we may have hope for the future. That God does not throw a person aside no matter how grievous the sin. "He is just and righteous and will cleanse us from all unrighteousness."
    In the end when David repented with bitter tears he was called a man after God's own heart!
    It's all about the love ❤ of God of which no one can plumb the depths. God IS love‼ AMEN!

    Amen!(39)

    I am just thanking God for his words which is so powerful it is like a glass which make me see how sinful I am and it is like water which help me to bath the sin away and leave me growing daily to reach my destination where I will be with my Lord some sweet day. halleluyah, praise God

    Amen!(4)
  3. While King David's fall is less remarkable than the fall of Lucifer, 1/3 of the angels or Adam, we feel more connected since we too are born and raised in a fallen, sinful environment, being tutored well by seasoned sinners. Yet Jesus shows we can live a life of complete victory "in this present world". Only the forgiveness granted to the genuinely repentant soul can lead us to one day being presented "faultless" before the "presence of His glory with exceeding joy!" (I think Jude would insert the exclamation point if writing this today)

    List other promises? So many, but a particular favorite is Psalm 37 that gives a rather descriptive account of what the meek have to look forward to when God restores the "abundance of peace" that His creation without one trace of sin will enjoy for eternity.

    Amen!(1)
