Jesus is knocking at the door of your heart, a door which only you can open, Will you let the Savior in, and receive his gift of grace through confession, repentance, and baptism?
Jesus was and is a healer. Just as he healed a woman with great faith of her physical affliction, he can heal us of our sin affliction if we will put our faith, our trust, in him.
Despite Peter’s courage at moments prior to the trial of Jesus, he is overcome with fear as Jesus stands before the High Priest. Though he had said he was willing to die for Jesus, and even tried to kill for Him, when he was given the opportunity to stand up and defend the Savior, Peter backed down out of fear.
As we continue our walk with some of Israel’s kings, we turn our attention this week to Israel’s most famous king, David. Though he was called, “a man after God’s own heart,” he had his flaws. One in particular, his sin with Bathsheba, led to a beautiful Psalm of repentance which is the basis for our study this morning.
