Psalm Sundays – Musician Of Guilt (Psalm 51)

Psalm 51 - Musician Of Guilt


David admits his guilt in the case of Bathsheba and Uriah and asks for God’s forgiveness and restoration.


Psalm 51:1-19     2 Samuel 12:20     1 Corinthians 9:24-27     Ephesians 4:30     1 Thessalonians 5:19


David had flexed his kingly muscles – he saw a woman he wanted and took her. When his plan to cover up his adultery failed, he flexed again and had the husband killed. From the human perspective, it was a show of strength, as if David said, ‘I can do whatever I want and no one can stop me.’
In actuality, this was the weakest David had ever been. With his relationship with God blockaded by sin, all his vitality drained away. He was crushed by his guilt.”
