Grace Greater Than Sin

October 10, 2021 Speaker: Fred Greco Series: 2 Samuel

Topic: AM Service Passage: 2 Samuel 12:1–12:31

Sin is deceptive, horrible, and deadly. But the good news of the gospel is that God does not leave us to despair and destruction. We are blind to our sin and tend to excuse and rationalize it away. The Lord does not – and He sends His Word, our friends, and His messengers to us to make us see the horror and guilt of our sin. We may be tempted to think this is harsh or cruel, but the truth is that without divine intervention, we would blindly continue on the path of death. This was true of David as well. He had assumed that he had “gotten away” with his sin. He had successfully covered it up with lies and murder. But God always sees. The Lord sends Nathan the prophet with a story with a strong message: “you are the man!” This leads to repentance and the experience of forgiveness. It will never be as if David did not sin. Sin has consequences. But our great hope is in “Grace Greater Than Sin” (2 Samuel 12:1-31).
