  • Repentance
  • Sin
Psalm 51:1-10
RS 66-10


The gospel is only an implicit, untapped power in your life until it’s released in power through repentance. For the changes you want, the changes you seek, the changes you need–the secret is repentance.

This passage is perhaps the classic and the greatest passage in all of the Bible on this wonderful theme: repentance. What is repentance? We don’t know how to do it because we think we know how to do it already. So let’s take a look at it.

Psalm 51:1–10

The story of David and Bathsheba teaches us about saying sorry and turning back to God, which is what we call repentance. It shows why we need people in our lives who can point us to God’s teachings and help us see when we’ve done wrong. David’s courage and ability to lead are examples of why saying sorry is so important. The end of this story is a prayer for God’s help and understanding as we try to live a life of saying sorry when we need to.
