Overview

What we try to do on the Sunday before Easter is turn our minds toward what Jesus did, why he did it, and the meaning of what he did in Gethsemane, on the hill of Calvary, in the tomb. One of the things, among many, that it means is what we see here in Psalm 51.

Psalm 51 and the story around it tells us that no matter how much you blow up your life, it can be repaired. No matter how far you fall, you can be brought up. No matter how deeply broken, you can be made whole, because of what Jesus did.

Understanding Psalm 51

Psalm 51 focuses on the importance of saying sorry for our mistakes and understanding that we can be forgiven because of Jesus’ love for us. It warns us not to fool ourselves by thinking our wrong actions are okay, but to see them as God sees them, and to take responsibility for them. It also tells us about how saying sorry can change us, and how constantly learning to say sorry is a key part of growing in our faith. It points out how valuable it is to be humble and to seek forgiveness when we mess up.
