Longings of a Broken Heart

In this message from Psalm 51, we look at the reality of spiritual defeat and subsequent repentance.

Spiritual defeat is possible for anyone

 

  • because of the bent of our nature (Psalm 51:5)
  • because sin is attractive
  • because sin meets needs
  • because we have freedom of choice

 

Spiritual defeat is painful

 

  • the pain of alienation (Psalm 51:4)
  • the pain of guilt (Psalm 51:3)
  • the pain of joylessness (Psalm 51:8, Psalm 51:12)

 

There is pardon for sin

 

  • we should be serious about sin
  • we should be serious about God
