Weekly Scripture Study: Psalm 51:3-5

Posted by Jeremy Upton on

This week, we'll be studying Psalm 51:3-5. 

Here are your study questions:

  • Does sin go away because we want it to? (v3)

  • Based upon David’s tone, how does our sin affect God?

  • Based upon v4, is God justified in how He deals with our sin?

  • What is the implication in v4 of what our sin forces God to do?

  • When did our sin problem start (v5)?

  • Based on v5, is “sin” solely based on what we do?

  • Verse 5 implies that we are genetically hardwired to sin. Do you think that’s true? Why or why not?

I am asking us all to set aside an hour every day for Bible study, prayer, and individual or family worship.

During your hour, we ask that you practice the discipline of our four R’s:

  • Read - read & re-read the Scripture(s) for the day at least twice
  • Reflect - spend some time thinking about how the Scripture applies to what is happening to you or in your environment.
  • Write - Write down anything that stands out as important in your journal. Write down any prayer requests that come to mind out of your reflection time
  • Request - spend some time praying specifically about those things that stood out to you from your time o f reading, reflecting, and writing. Spend time interceding on the behalf of the church’s building search, leaders, volunteers, and specific Partners & their needs that come to mind.
