WHATEVER BECAME OF SIN?

Scripture Reading
II Samuel 12:
1. And the LORD sent Nathan unto David. And he came unto him, and said unto him, There were two men in one city; the one rich, and the other poor.

2. The rich man had exceeding many flocks and herds:

3. But the poor man had nothing, save one little ewe lamb, which he had bought and nourished up: and it grew up together with him, and with his children; it did eat of his own meat, and drank of his own cup, and lay in his bosom, and was unto him as a daughter.

4. And there came a traveller unto the rich man, and he spared to take of his own flock and of his own herd, to dress for the wayfaring man that was come unto him; but took the poor man's lamb, and dressed it for the man that was come to him.

5. And David's anger was greatly kindled against the man; and he said to Nathan, As the LORD liveth, the man that hath done this thing shall surely die:

6. And he shall restore the lamb fourfold, because he did this thing, and because he had no pity.

Key Verse
7. And Nathan said to David, Thou art the man. Thus saith the LORD God of Israel, I anointed thee king over Israel, and I delivered thee out of the hand of Saul;

8. And I gave thee thy master's house, and thy master's wives into thy bosom, and gave thee the house of Israel and of Judah; and if that had been too little, I would moreover have given unto thee such and such things.

9. Wherefore hast thou despised the commandment of the LORD, to do evil in his sight? thou hast killed Uriah the Hittite with the sword, and hast taken his wife to be thy wife, and hast slain him with the sword of the children of Ammon.

10. Now therefore the sword shall never depart from thine house; because thou hast despised me, and hast taken the wife of Uriah the Hittite to be thy wife.

11. Thus saith the LORD, Behold, I will raise up evil against thee out of thine own house, and I will take thy wives before thine eyes, and give them unto thy neighbour, and he shall lie with thy wives in the sight of this sun.

12. For thou didst it secretly: but I will do this thing before all Israel, and before the sun.

13. And David said unto Nathan, I have sinned against the LORD. And Nathan said unto David, The LORD also hath put away thy sin; thou shalt not die.

14. Howbeit, because by this deed thou hast given great occasion to the enemies of the LORD to blaspheme, the child also that is born unto thee shall surely die.


1. Whatever became of the reality of sin?

A. Observation teaches us the reality of sin.
B. Experience teaches us the reality of sin.

2. Whatever became of the regret over sin?

A. Regret comes because sin hurts God.
B. Regret comes because sin destroys self.

3. Whatever became of the repentance from sin?

A. Repentance has a supreme place.
B. Repentance has profound meaning.


THINK IT OVER
I think that throughout life, there are opportunities to turn life around by repenting. How about you? Do you need to turn and go in God's direction today?

KJV I Timothy 2: 15
Study to show thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.

REJOICE IN GOD

Scripture Reading
Romans 5:
1. Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ:

2. By whom also we have access by faith into this grace wherein we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God.

3. And not only so, but we glory in tribulations also: knowing that tribulation worketh patience;

4. And patience, experience; and experience, hope:

5. And hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us.

6. For when we were yet without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly.

7. For scarcely for a righteous man will one die: yet peradventure for a good man some would even dare to die.

8. But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.

9. Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him.

10. For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life.

Key Verse
11. And not only so, but we also joy in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom we have now received the atonement.


1. Rejoice in peace with God. See Romans 5:1 and 2.

A. Before salvation there is no peace.
B. After salvation there is peace.

2. Rejoice also in tribulations. See Romans 5:3 and 4.

A. These verses are not saying to rejoice because of tribulations. However, when troubles come, find joy in them.
B. Christians believe that God can use tribulations to build character.

3. Rejoice in God through whom we have reconciliation. See Romans 5:2 and Romans 6:11.

Romans 6:
11. Likewise reckon ye also yourselves to be dead indeed unto sin, but alive unto God through Jesus Christ our Lord.


THINK IT OVER

May we rejoice in continuing to exalt God through our Lord Jesus Christ by whom we have received reconciliation.
