We finish our exploration of Psalm 51 as we learn from David’s failings in sexual sin plus his repentance and restoration in his relationship with God. We see a lesson for ourselves in the difference between outwardly pleasing God versus the joy of true repentance.
Psalm 51 is one of the best guides for us men after we have fallen to sexual sin. If you have recently failed, pick up your “sword” and read this Psalm through. Pray it through. It reveals an excellent way to react to our sin each time we fall.
