We Reap What We Sow


2 Samuel 12:9-14

The Story

David had sinned with Bathsheba.

We have seen how it was conceived.

We have seen how it was committed.

We have seen how it was confronted and confessed.

We have seen how David bore the scars and the terrible consequences of his sins.

David finally discovered the truth:
  • God always instantly and completely forgives sin when there is confession and genuine repentance.
  • But God does not remove the consequences of sins.
Lessons

We will reap exactly what we sow.

In fact, we will reap more than we sow.

And we will reap what we sow in this life!

The idea that if we confess our sins, we will not be punished is not true.

Remember...

Confession and repentance do not stop the consequences of sin.

We will definitely reap what we sow.

But God is gracious to us:
  • We don't have to die for our sins.
  • We have His help to face the consequences of sin.
  • God will continue his plan for our lives.
Remember, we reap what we sow!

And it is always true.
