When we are loved...

The Father’s Love

(in a mother’s heart)

Text: 2 Samuel 12:13 & Psalm 51

The Father’s Model

Love makes the choice to forgive sin before sin is even admitted. Forgiveness is shown when we admit our sin and confess it.

REPENTANCE Admission of guilt (my transgressions v. 1 & 3) Admission of rebellion (done evil in Your sight v. 4) Admission of just punishment (you are justified / blameless v. 4) Admission of our corrupt nature (brought forth in iniquity v. 5) Admission of great need (my innermost needs v. 6)
