    I keep thinking about David and Bathesheba and Uriah, The early CHURCH WAS STILL MARRIED TO THE LAW,Thats y Paul is saying you are dead to the law by the body of Christ THAT YOU SHOULD BEMARRIED TO ANOTHER EVEN TO HIM THAT WAS RAISED FROM THE DEAD.THIS RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN CHRIST AND CHURCH YIELDED A CHILD CALLED CHRISTIANITY WHICH WAS SICK AND DIED IN ITS INFANCY,BUT SHE TRAVAILED IN BIRTH AGAIN

    Ah,Oh No,David,We have all fell n2 temptation,temptation has come in many forms and is different unto each individual,I am glad we can repent,it is so important,for even if only 1 person repents,there is a AMEN from the KINGDOM,the savory sweetness that prayer brings unto the nose of the LORD,filling his nose and heart with happiness when his children repent,wether it be action,thought or verbal.

    Verse 14: We see how hardened David's conscience had become. He had Uriah carry his own death sentence.

    Anne; maybe you've seen these kinds of things; I sure have! Once sin takes hold, and the man changes his whole way of thinking and behavior, there is such a moral spiraling out of control that seems to never take an end; unless of course, the Lord intervenes to send His messenger to convict him; if perchance he might humble himself at the Word, and really repent. David's conversion was a miracle!
  • Anne
    This chapter reminds us that sin may seem personal but look at the effect it can have on lives of others.
  • Lu2677
    Yes, David sinned, adultery and murder,(2 Samuel 11). 2 Samuel 12 David knew God was displeased with him, he repented. Nevertheless, God punished David by causing his new born son to be sick and die. Then God blessed David with another son; Solomon. And God loved Solomon.
