I often talk about Scripture changing the way you think. Well get ready, because Shane and Shane’s song, Psalm 51 (Wisdom in the Secret Heart), leads us to a Psalm of David where it is obvious he has begun to think differently about his sin. I was crying out for God’s cleansing alongside David after spending a week here.
Get ready to get uncomfortable…in a good way.
On this episode I discuss:
- Taking a B.I.T.E. out of Scripture – this week’s Bible Interaction Tool Exercises include:
- Don’t just decide to jump into God’s Word…really jump in
- Listen to audio version of Scripture – I use YouVersion
- Focus in on a smaller section of Scripture that is fairly self-contained
- Utilize a commentary – I used Charles Spurgeon and Wayne Grudem this week
- Meditate on Scripture
- Take advantage of small pockets of time
- Talk about what you’re learning with a friend
- The story behind Psalm 51 – 2 Samuel 11-12
- How the Psalm starts out with a cry for mercy – Psalm 51:1-2
- How David cannot seem to escape the reality of his sin – Psalm 51:3
- When we sin it is ALWAYS against God
- We have a sin nature we cannot escape…we were sinful from the beginning
- Psalm 51:4-6
- Romans 5:18-19
- Ephesians 2:3
