Sin: David had too much time on his hands. He had given leadership of his army to Joab and was relaxing at his palace. That’s when he saw Bathsheba. It’s a well-known story found in II Samuel 11. The outcome was that David took up with Bathsheba and had Uriah, her husband, killed. The interesting part is that David covered up his sin. That is, until Nathan came along and related a story about a rich man taking a poor man’s prized possession (II Samuel 12). David had deceived himself to the point that he didn’t realize the story was about him. And that is where our sermon began.
Brother T. J. Stout has been our revival preacher for the past week. Today was the crowning jewel of everything that was taught to us this week. “Thou art the man.” It’s in II Samuel 12:7. David, a man after God’s own heart, had committed these sins. David is a man who is studied and appreciated for his love of God. Jesus Christ is a descendant of David. But, yet, “Thou art the man.”
It’s gives one pause for self-reflection. How many see a world dying in sin and don’t cry a warning? (Romans 5:12) How many know of those who are hungry for the word of God and pass on by? (Matthew 4:4) How many know the unsaved and do nothing? (Romans 10:9) How many want to go to heaven but want to skip the work of the Lord? (Ephesians 6:6) Nathan said, “Thou art the man” to David but is could just as easily fit many in today’s world.
