Devotion #8 Fall 2017 Life and Times of David

Updated: Apr 18, 2020

This season we learned about King David. He was a good and godly king. But like all of us, David was a sinner and needed a Savior. David prayed, “Have mercy upon me, O God…Wash me…and cleanse me from my sin. For I acknowledge my transgressions…” (Psalm 51:1-3) David lived 70 years, “and he died in a good old age.” (I Chronicles 29:28) David’s prayer in Psalm 16, verse 11, came to pass: “Thou wilt shew me the path of life: in thy presence is fullness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore.”

Just as David needed a Savior, so do we. We need Jesus. The Bible says “all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God…But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us…if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.” (Romans 3:23, 5:8, and 10:9) We are all sinners. We will all die and face God some day. God offers us forgiveness because Jesus died for us. We need to confess (admit) our sins, believe on Jesus, and invite him into our hearts. Jesus loves you. Won’t you accept Him as your Savior today?
