Then I Will Teach
Written by: Ricky Spears Recorded by: Ricky Spears
This meditation is the last of a three part series on Psalm 51. In Have Mercy on Me, O God, we examined the first 6 verses as David laments over his sin of committing adultery with Bathsheba and the murder of her husband Uriah, and asks God to forgive him. In Create in Me a Pure Heart, we contemplated verses 7 through 12 where David asks God to clean him, renew him, and restore him. In this mediation we see David's response to God's grace. He begins by saying, Then I Will Teach.
When I originally began to write the first meditation in this series, I was only going to do a few particular verses from this Psalm. As I meditated on it in my own life though, I realized that every line holds life-changing truth that needs to be seriously contemplated. A single meditation would probably be more than an hour long though, so I decided to present it in a three-part series. This is the last of those three parts. I am now planning to do more series type meditations that will build and elaborate on each other and allow us to go deeper into the study and personal application of Godâ€™s Word. Let me know what you think in the comments. (Photo by Anna Gay. Original on flickr. Licensed under Creative Commons Attribution-No Derivative Works 2.0 Generic License)
