If anyone knew what it meant to have a conscience burdened by the guilt of sin, it was King David. The plots he initiated to conceal his sin did not ease His conscience. In fact, his behavior only made it worse. It was when David realized that he had transgressed against the Holy God - the One True God who promised to wash away his sin - that his burden was finally lifted. Like David, we must realize that, regardless of how stained we are, we can rest in God’s unfailing love and mercy towards us.
