David and Bathsheba

Morning Service
May 30, 2021

Is it possible to erase a lifetime of usefulness in one moment of weakness? That seemed to have been the case with David. He lived an exemplary life that pointed forward to Jesus—until his sordid affair with Bathsheba. As Alistair Begg recounts the defining moment of the king’s moral collapse, he points out dangers to avoid and warnings to heed. Yet as we seek to deal with temptation in its infancy, we must also trust that God overcomes sin and shame, never abandons His people, and never loses control of His purposes.

Topics: Adultery, Biblical Figures, Lust, Sin, Temptation, Warnings

2 Samuel 11:1-5
