The Cry of a Fallen Leader

From Series: More Jars Of Clay

Psalms 51:1-19  (ID: 2030)

King David knew what it meant to suffer a guilty conscience. Rather than provide relief, however, his efforts to conceal his sin only managed to intensify his burden. Peace of heart and mind became possible only after David cried out to God for forgiveness. Genuine repentance and godly sorrow don’t hide behind excuses, moral indignation, or repression, teaches Alistair Begg. Like David, we must confess our sins, repent, and trust in God’s unfailing love and great compassion.


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.
