Psalm 32 - July 27th 2018

Blessed are the Forgiven

Read Psalm 32:

  1. Who does David say is blessed (1-2)?
  2. What situation does he describe himself in? What is the cause of his anguish (3-4)?
  3. What led to his relief (5)?
  4. What application does David give in light of this relief (6-7)?
  5. What are his concluding instructions?
    1. What should we not be like? What does that mean?
  6. What two situations are contrasted at the end? How does this conclusion relate to the point of the psalm?

Application:

  1. What does this psalm teach us about confessing our sins? Have you experienced this to be true?
  2. What definition of godliness does this psalm provide?
  3. How does sin relate to godliness in this passage?
  4. How should this affect the way we live together as Christians?
  5. How should we respond when other Christians confess sin and genuinely repent from it?
