REDEMPTIVE CONVIVTION

October 12, 2016

Wednesday

 

2 Samuel 12:13

 

Then David said to Nathan, “I have sinned against the LORD ” And Nathan said to David, “The LORD also has taken away your sin; you shall not die.

 

 

LESSON

 

Finally the Lord sent His prophet to confront the king. This required considerable courage on Nathan’s part, since David could have hardened his heart and had the prophet executed, as he had executed Uriah.

In confronting someone in his sin, the timing is as important as the wording. Simply to tighten your belt, grab your Bible and, at your convenience, confront a person who is in sin is unwise. Most importantly, you need to be sure that you’re sent by God. Nathan was.

If we don’t confess our sin, we become slaves to our guilt.  The Lord is gracious and compassionate, ready to forgive our sin. In His righteousness, He may deal with us severely even after He has forgiven us. But we can trust that He always has our ultimate good in mind. So we can submit to Him and worship him, even when He sends affliction into our lives.
