Thousands of years ago, a collection of lyrical poems were written.
This collection was originally titled, Tehillim, in Hebrew, which means “praise songs”.
Today we know them in our Bible as the Book of Psalms.
Throughout this series, we are going to study three specific Psalms in order to understand how they can impact us today.
“What do I do with my sin?”

That's the question David was faced with in response to the terrible sins he committed. And the question is the same for us today.
Psalm 51 is a psalm of repentance.

What is repentance? The term throughout Scripture is often translated "to turn" or "to return". Repentance is admitting you have strayed and, in response, returning to God.
David begins with confession.

“For I know my transgressions, and my sin is always before me. Against you, you only, have I sinned and done what is evil in your sight; so you are right in your verdict and justified when you judge. Surely I was sinful at birth, sinful from the time my mother conceived me”. Psalm 51:3-5
After confessing, next comes choosing the path of repentance.

Consider the words/phrases David uses throughout Psalm 51:
-Cleanse me
-Blot out my iniquity
-Create in me a pure heart
-Renew my spirit
-Restore joy
-Sustain me
-Deliver me
Bottom Line:
It doesn’t matter what you’ve done. Bring it to Him.
