Passage: 2 Samuel 7:1-17, John 8:1-11

There’s an old saying, “The Christian isn’t perfect, just forgiven.” How true that is…and how crucial it is to remember it. David, “a man after God’s own heart,” sinned grievously by committing adultery with Bathsheba and orchestrating the death of her husband. He pleads for forgiveness, and, although God rebuffs his offer to build Him a house, He promises God David’s dynastic house will continue forever. Jesus, in dealing with a woman caught in sin, makes her accusers reflect on the weight of their own sin.
