Growth Group Teaching - Week 23 - This week Pastor Rick Clark discusses God's forgiveness and discipline in the story of David and Bathsheba. David's sin was an affront to God, fortunately David realizes his sin and asks for forgiveness. God forgives David, even to the point of calling him, "a man after God's own heart." But forgiveness doesn't free us from the repercussions of our actions. And as we find out David realizes his need to forgive himself if he is to fulfill God's plan for his life. This applies directly to us today. Jesus is the answer and if we believe that, our lives and hearts should reflect it. Join us in this year long study as we explore the Old and New Testaments and see how Jesus is and has always been the subject and main character of the Bible. Sometimes we may feel the bible stories are about us and how we can relate to God, but it's not about us but about Jesus, the coming Messiah, our conquering King, the Savior of the world.
