Scripture: Psalm 51:1–51:19
SMALL GROUP DISCUSSION
- What is the story behind this Psalm? (read 2 Samuel 11:1-12:25) Although David is a true hero of the Old Testament, this Psalm comes from a dark chapter of his life. Have you had times of turning away from the Lord in your life?
- Many in this world don't mind living with the stains of sin. Why does David desire to be washed clean? How do you feel about having to live with sin in your life?
- What does David mean when he says in Psalm 51:4 that he has sinned against God and God only?
- Where is both David's and our hope found? How does the gospel of Jesus Christ restore to us the joy of our salvation?
