Psalm 51: Prayer of Forgiveness

“Have mercy upon me, O God, according to Your lovingkindness; according to the multitude of Your tender mercies, blot out my transgressions” (Ps. 51:1). This week Chris shares from Psalm 51, a psalm of repentance.

We’ll learn how David’s plea for forgiveness from the sin he committed against God involving Bathsheba showed his knowledge of God’s character, which can be found in His Word. And be encouraged as we hear that when we ask, God forgives immediately and how that begins the journey to restoration.

Not to the Strong

by Elwood McQuaid

From beginning to end, the book of Judges chronicles a very depressing moment in Israel’s history. The people lost sight of the God who promised them rest and peace in the Land of Israel, and instead did what was right in their own eyes. God, unwilling to let His people wallow in their sins, sent imperfect judges to rescue them from their enemies.  Journey to the time of the judges and examine the lives of four deliverers found in Hebrews Hall of Heros: Barak, Gideon, Jephthah, and Samson.
