This Sunday we resume our series in II Samuel as the LORD sends the prophet Nathan to confront David over his sin of committing adultery with Bathsheba and then murdering her husband Uriah in the cover up. In chapter 11 it seemed that David was in control and that he had literally gotten by with his crimes, but the LORD took notice. Several months later the LORD takes action as he sends the prophet Nathan to expose and rebuke David’s sin.

This passage reminds us that, while a true believer can fall into sin, sooner or later the LORD will do what it takes to bring him to repentance.

Nathan serves as an example of how God calls us to restore one another when someone falls into sin (Gal. 6:1).

It is also a reminder of how we should be receptive to those who come to admonish us.
