Down, But Not Out

Selected highlights from this sermon.

Can God use us even if we’ve committed horrible sins? Yes. God can even use us in a mighty way—but first we have to get our souls revived and restored.

By looking at the adulterous affair with Bathsheba and the murder of her husband Uriah, Pastor Lutzer shows us how David went from despair, guilt, and unbelievable regret to a man who’s sweeping story—with all of its high and low points—leads to the birth of Christ.

David was out of hope and had nowhere else to turn. He went before God and confessed his sin through guilt-ridden tears. God not only forgave him, but He used a child born of Bathsheba, put them into the genealogy of Jesus Christ.

So yes, God can use us even if we’ve greatly sinned.
