This week's study: Psalm 51
Questions for the Text:
- What does verse four teach us about how we should respond to sin?
- In verse eleven, David asks God not to take His Holy Spirit away. How might David’s understanding of the Holy Spirit differ from ours?
Questions for Our Lives:
- Peterson says “our experience of sin does not consist of doing some bad things, but of being bad. It is a fundamental condition of our existence, not a temporary lapse into error.” What does he mean by this statement? Do you agree? Why or why not?
- How can we create a Christian culture that is more open about our sin, and our need for forgiveness?
Now or Later
Attempt to do Peterson’s exercise at least once this week, focusing on a particular sin, or pattern of sin behavior.
