The Poco a Poco Podcast with the Franciscan Friars of the Renewal

Nov 17, 2021

A series on King David: Part 4 of 4

Are we good at repenting? When someone notices our stuff and points it out… are we open to it? To repenting wholeheartedly? Or do we hold onto it?

We need help repenting and finding healing, so God constantly sends prophets to speak into the lives of his chosen people. David’s a really good example of how to be formed; how to be led.

Look at Psalm 51 for a model of repentance. The orientation is totally towards God; it’s not about turning in on ourselves. It is God who creates a new heart in you. We can choose to make sure that repentance takes place in relationship with God, who loves us. Even in the repentance of Psalm 51, there’s a hope for restoration and reconciliation, and a recognition that God is still a giver of good gifts. Let us repent well.

Coming up: we’re going to prepare for Advent with Finding Your Place in the Advent Story from Ascension Press. Check it out here:
