Psalm 51:1-19
John 3:16-21

The story of King David (a man after God’s own heart) and Bathsheba illustrates the seriousness of sin and how susceptible our human nature is to temptations. When David through the prophet Nathan has to confront his sin, he humbly confesses: “I have sinned against the Lord.” Then David hears these marvelous, wonderful words from Nathan, “The Lord has taken away your sin. You are not going to die.” Though there were consequences to his sin, David believed and trusted God forgave him.
