How God Deals With Our Sins (2 Samuel 12)
It is clear to me that the David of 2 Samuel 11 was an imposter. He was not the real David. The real David was a man after God’s own heart. This imposter-David was a man who let down his guard and stumbled into sin … he was overtaken in a fault(s), very grievous and serious ones.
So how does the Lord deal with David? How does He treat the sweet psalmist of Israel, the nation’s greatest king?
I invite you to listen to the study and find out. It’s a hard story, but one with lots of mercy and grace. In fact, all the major attributes of God’s name and character are on display in this chapter … His mercy, graciousness, longsuffering, truthfulness, forgiveness, justice, and discipline (see Exodus 34:5-7).
The story becomes a template for the way God deals with us in our sins, and a lesson in the nature of God.
God bless you as you study God’s Word.
Thanks for reading and listening.
