Scripture Lesson: Psalm 51:14-17

Today is the birthday of Pirates pitcher Jeff Karstens who on September 19, 2011 gave up only one run in losing to the Diamondbacks 1-0. The only run of the game came on a broken bat home run by Justin Upton.

Today’s Scripture lesson is the Psalm David composed after the prophet Nathan confronted him after his affair with Bathsheba. He pleads with God to cleanse him from his sin. David is indeed a broken man and in verse 17 comes to realize what it takes to come back to God. David writes what God wants is a broken spirit and a broken and contrite heart. Sometimes we are too easy on ourselves when we sin. As a believer we know that if we ask for forgiveness we will receive forgiveness. When we sin we need to realize that our sin does the same thing to Jesus as nailing Him to the cross. Our sin should cause our hearts to break. Only God can put that heart back together after our repentance and confession?

1. Does forgiveness bring restoration and joy?

2. Have we taken forgiveness for granted? Why or why not?

3. Describe a time sin broke you and what God did to retore you to Him.

Sin not only hurts us, it separates us from God. It is time to come home to Him with confession and repentance.
