Topic: THE SAUL DESTROYER AND DAVID SUSTAINER
BASIC SCRIPTURE Acts 13: 16-23
In 2 Samuel 11, there is an account of how David while hiding away saw Bathsheba, Uriah’s wife from the rooftop, lusted after her, slept with her, made her pregnant and killed Uriah her husband to cover the sin.
But in 2 Samuel 12:1-12, God sent prophet Nathan to David to expose his secret sin and pronounce the judgment that will come upon his house for killing Uriah. David acknowledged his sin, took responsibility and laid on the floor all night prayıng for the child. The child still died and the sword came upon the house of David as pronounced.
But David did not die neither did he lose his throne because the moment his sin was uncovered to him by Prophet Nathan, his first reaction was to own up and take responsibility for it – “And David said unto Nathan, I have sinned against the Lord. And Nathan said unto David, The Lord also hath put away thy sin; thou shalt not die.” This statement by David and the humility that surounded it showed his attitude towards sin. It showed that David had zero tolerance for sin and after falling this one time, it never happened again.
Little wonder Aiden Wilson Tozer “Repentance isn’t only sorow for past sins, its also a determination to now do the will or God, as He reveals it to us.” King Saul was a direct contrast to David, when it came to his attitude sin. In 1 Samuel 15:1-28, God sent King Saul to destroy the Amalekites but rather than obey the word of God in its entirety, he brought back the King of the Amalekites alive, with some sheep and oxen in the name of sacrificing to the Lord, when the command was to wipe out the Amalekites and everything about them completely.
1 Samuel 15:19-20 showed the attitude of Saul towards sin and it says: Wherefore then didst thou not obey the voice of the Lord, but didst fly upon the spoil, and didst evil in thee sight of the Lord? And Saul said unto Samuel, Yea, I have obeyed the voice of the Lord, and have gone the way which the Lord sent me, and have brought Agag the king of Amalek and have utterly destroyed the Amalelkites.” This shows Saul’s unrepentant attitude towards sin and of course he lost the throne and his life eventually.
David did not only sustain his throne by God; his attitude towards sin showed that his being pronounced: A man after God’s own heart was deserving according to Acts 13:22. Proverbs 28:13 says: He that covereth his sins shall not prosper but whoso confessetih and forsalketh them shall have mercy.” Always remember that sin FASCINATES before it assassinates! Rather than try to explain your sins away and justify yourself like Saul did and was destroyed, be like David, take responsibility, confess and forsake THAT Join 17,661 other subscribers
