The Prayer of Repentance (Ps. 51:1-6)

David, the man after God’s own heart, not only enjoyed the anointing, the blessings, and the favor of God as the chosen king over Israel, but was also deeply acquainted with his mercy and forgiveness. David was indeed a sinful man no different from the rest – particularly evident in the incident with Bathsheba (2 Sam 11:1-12:23) – and was painfully aware of the sins he had committed against the eternal and righteous King of heaven and earth. David knew that his only hope for forgiveness was to throw himself upon the mercy and steadfast love of God. In this sermon, Pastor Kyle begins to look at this quintessential psalm of repentance to better understand our sinfulness, our radical depravity, and what a heart of repentance truly looks like.
