II Samuel 12:1-15a — “Thou art the man.” …So said the prophet Nathan to King David when he confronted him about his sin with Bathsheba and the murder of Uriah. David responded with repentance and received forgiveness from the Lord, but the damage had been done. There would be awful long-term consequences stemming from his sin.
In the message that Nathan brought to David we have some vital truths about the nature of sin. These truths serve to warn us and to drive us to the blood of Jesus that washes all our sins away.
