May 26th Sermon Discussion Questions

  1. Using the example of David, the author of Psalm 51, as our benchmark, a man had been guilty of egregious sin, how many times have you witnessed such full-throated repentance before God?
  2. What does the relative lack of such examples suggest to you? Why is that? What accounts for that?
  3. What is the relationship of repentance to faith?
  4. What is it that God really wants from us in dealing with our sins? See verses 16-17. What substitutes do people tend to offer?
