Speaker: Will Galkin - We all stumble, struggle and sin. Yet, many times our hardened hearts do not look to God for mercy and grace. Some of us out of pride try to convince ourselves and others that our deeds of self righteousness outweigh our shortcomings. Some of us out of fear cover our sin and hope that others forget about it even though we cannot. Some of us motivated out of laziness leave it unresolved for all to see. All of these responses are failing to see what God wants. He does not want us to cover it up or merely conform. He desires that we would find forgiveness with Him. What he delights in is a broken and contrite heart. Brokenness can be defined as the shattering of my will so that my every action and reaction is controlled by the Spirit of God. This morning we will look to 2 Samuel 11-12 and see The Need for a Broken Heart. Then in Psalm 51 we will see the Prayer of a Broken Heart. May God help all of His people have hearts that are broken and contrite.
