Day 1 of 5
Psalm 51 is David's cry to God for repentance for the pattern of sin he engaged in following his transgression with Bathsheba. You can almost picture David on his knees crying out to God at the top of his lungs in asking Him to wash away his sins. This Psalm also offers us a picture of what repentance should look like in our lives. First, David acknowledges his sin. Next, he asks for forgiveness. Then, he asks God to renew him. Finally, he asks God to help him use his sin to teach those who are engaged in sin and are in need of repentance. What does repentance in your life look like? How could following David's example of repentance strengthen your relationship with God?
Repentance is one of the key actions we all take in coming to know Christ as our personal Savior. Repentance is our action and forgiveness is God's reaction to us out of His perfect love for us. During this 5-day reading plan, you will receive a daily Bible reading and a brief devotional designed to help you better understand the importance of repentance in our walk with Christ.
