A Failed Solution

Morning Service
Jun 6, 2021

Hiding sin is always a futile exercise. King David knew this—yet when he allowed his lust for Bathsheba to triumph over obedience to God’s laws, he still attempted to conceal his wrongdoing. Twice David tried to use Bathsheba’s husband Uriah to cover his sin, and twice he failed. As Alistair Begg explains, David’s actions reveal our own propensity for deception and should cause us to tremble at the approach of sin and commit afresh to trusting in God’s promises.
