A wandering mind drove King David to distraction and became more than he could bear. But his multiple sins refused to stay silent. No struggle is more relentless than sin…especially unconfessed sin. Let’s take a close look at David’s response to his sin and gain some insight for our own lives about God’s blessed gift of forgiveness.
Guilt, Grace, and Gratitude
As the calendar year nears its end, many of us look forward to spending time among family and friends. And while those times have great potential for joy, they also require healthy doses of forgiveness and grace. This two-message series from Chuck Swindoll traces the significant biblical themes of forgiveness and grace and reminds us of a pair of God’s gifts we can all be thankful for this holiday season.
Christians since the first century have been tempted to trade grace for a life directed by strict law and high-minded requirement. The Apostle Paul addressed the Galatian church on this very issue, warning them against trading God’s Gospel for a different, human-made gospel. As we hear the word to the Galatians, keeping our message grounded in grace will help our lives exude grace.
