The Life of David
David’s Child Dies
II Samuel 12:15-31
Even believers want to know how to come back after egregious sin.
Believers have to endure the consequences for sin even though we have been forgiven.
I. Seek God in Prayer (II Samuel 12:15-16)
But David did not assume that God’s declaration that the child would die was so settled that he just sat back and waited for the inevitable to happen.
II. Acknowledge Your Sin (II Samuel 12:17)
Don’t hide it or refuse to face those who are in a position to help and who want to help.
III. Submit to God’s Will (II Samuel 12:18-23)
David’s acceptance of the child’s death shows his submission to God’s will.
IV. Receive God’s Blessing (II Samuel 12:24-25)
Forgiveness cancels past sin, promises future blessing, and opens the gate of heaven.
V. Return to Duty (II Samuel 12:26-31)
God wants you to serve him with the gifts that he has given you.
And because of that truth, let me urge you to seek God in prayer, acknowledge your sin, submit to God’s will, receive God’s blessing, and then return to duty.
