The book of Psalm. It’s a roller-coaster ride of highs and lows from the perspective of King David as he writes about his relationship with God. Psalm 51 is the fourth of seven Psalms known as the “penitential psalms” (or those that give expression to feelings of penitence). And if anyone should know about feeling sorrow or regret, it’s certainly King David.
Another David—David Lee from Loft City Church in Richardson, Texas had a great sermon recently about this specific Psalm…
“This Psalm, every single time I read it, it messes me up. There’s no easy way of preaching this Psalm. This Psalm is not meant to draw a crowd.”
But Lee preaches that this passage is absolutely critical in our walk with God. Sometimes strongholds and past regrets can easily hinder our holy relationship and Psalm 51 helps us to overcome that. If you want to watch the complete sermon, click below or read the highlights after the jump.
