Bible Passage: 2 Kings 12: 1-15
Memory Verse: ''Have mercy upon me, O God, According to Your loving kindness; According to the multitude of Your tender mercies, Blot out my transgressions. Wash me thoroughly from my iniquity, And cleanse me from my sin.'' Psalm 51: 1 - 2 NKJV
The Grace of God continues to baffle me. Each time I ponder on it, I cannot totally grasp its full depth and ramifications. The story in the Bible passage for this month is very apt to discuss the grace phenomenon. The story was told by Prophet Nathan to David as a metaphor to underline David's sin and cause him to, with his own mouth, pass judgement upon himself. Earlier on in Chapter 11, David committed the grievous sin of adultery and premeditated murder.
