The Cry of a Fallen Leader

What do we do when we are finally and utterly convicted of our sin? After he committed adultery, David wrote Psalm 51 as a cry of repentance, demonstrating the right response to guilt. As Alistair Begg explains, there is only one who can handle our problem of sin, and only one thing we can say when we approach Him. Our God of compassion and unfailing love is waiting to give us the radical solution necessary for our fallen nature and guilty consciences.


Nathan Rebukes David

1And the Lord sent Nathan to David. He came to him and said to him, “There were two men in a certain city, the one rich and the other poor.

Create in Me a Clean Heart, O God

To the choirmaster. A Psalm of David, when Nathan the prophet went to him, after he had gone in to Bathsheba.

1Have mercy on me,1 O God,

according to your steadfast love;

according to your abundant mercy

blot out my transgressions.
