The King of Israel, David recorded in this 51st Psalm, his repentance for his bold, rebellious act of adultery with Bathsheba, the wife of Uriah, a soldier in his army. There are several factors or acts of sin involved in this story of David that we could highlight, but our focus is on his reaction to self-inflicted nonsense (SIN). Though out the self-inflicted nonsense, King David came to his senses unctioned by his cousin and Prophet Nathan and confessed, repented and sought peace with God.
Regardless of how many or how great the self-inflicted nonsense we commit, there should be an opportunity to recognize the error of our ways, but it doesn't always work out that way. Here King David begged God to have mercy on him. According to His loving kindness and tender mercies, he pleaded God to please blot out his transgressions. If you know the story, repentance does not negate judgment nor the penalty of sin, but it does change our state of conviction with Grace.
We repent for the sake of justification; 1 John 1:8–10, speaks to the point of seeking God's forgiveness. God commands us to ask for forgiveness and to forgive others as a condition of His forgiveness, Matthew 6:14. As a point of understanding, we who are in Christ have died from SIN to face the Lord before the Bema Seat of Christ (2 Corinthians 5:10) and in this present life we submit to water baptism as the earthly sign of our SIN death, to live in justification the Life of Christ (John 5:24). To take this one step further, we seek the baptism in the Spirit to justify Life Everlasting by the death of SIN eternally (Matthew 3:11).
Have mercy upon me, O God, according to thy lovingkindness: according unto the multitude of thy tender mercies blot out my transgressions.
Merciful Lord, we thank You for Your Mercy according to your loving kindness; we thank you in the oneness of spirit. We praise You for Your tender mercies blotting out all of our transgressions. We decree and declare blessings upon those who have their wants to be fulfilled by the Blood of the Lamb of God, so that; by Your Grace and Patience, You restore our souls and lead us into the paths of righteousness for Your Kingdom sake. Now, for the Kingdom and the Glory of God, we petition, with anointing in the name of Jesus Christ, our Lord, and Savior, Amen.
