The Gospel in the Old Testament – 12 – David – seeking forgiveness

Though King David was a true believer at the time of his terrible sin, nevertheless his repentance is an example to the lost of how to come to God to ask for forgiveness. In Psalm 51 we find the gospel in the Old Testament, and have a clear picture of how a guilty man can be right with God.  We must realize how completely sinful and ruined we are before a holy God, and how our sin is evil in his sight; and we must come to him to be washed in the blood of Jesus, His Son.
