Summary: Even the great King David saw the need for Salvation
Ps. 32:1-11 The King’s Need Of Forgiveness
Intro:David was one of the greatest Kings of Isreal.
He was a man after God’s own heart. David was a
great man. He was a man’s man. He had killed bears
and lions. He had gone into battle against a giant
and won. But, David was also a sinner. This Psalm is a
Salvation Psalm. Even in the O.T., we can see the need
for forgiveness of sin. Even when we think we are
close to God, we can find ourselves in need for
forgiveness. The Bible tells us we must be perfect like
God is perfect to get to Heaven. We are not like
God, but Jesus is the Son of God and is the latter we
can climb to get to Heaven. Let’s look at some
Insights to forgiveness here in Ps. 32....
1. The First Insight we see is the NEED of
A Psalm of David. A Contemplation.
Blessed is he whose transgression is forgiven,
Whose sin is covered.
 Blessed is the man to whom the Lord does not impute iniquity,
And in whose spirit there is no deceit.
 When I kept silent, my bones grew old
Through my groaning all the day long.
 For day and night Your hand was heavy upon me;
My vitality was turned into the drought of summer.
A. Sin is implied.
1. Mankind is sinful, “transgression.”
2. We miss the mark, “sin.”
3. Our nature is to sin, “iniquity.”
4. We have all sinned.
for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,
5. We can not make it by our own
As it is written:
"There is none righteous, no, not one;
B. Sin was discovered.[3-4]
1. David was convicted of his sin.
2. He suffered emotionally.
3. He suffered physically.
11. The 2nd Insight is the WAY of Salvation.[5-6]
I acknowledged my sin to You,
And my iniquity I have not hidden.
I said, "I will confess my transgressions to the Lord,"
And You forgave the iniquity of my sin.
 For this cause everyone who is godly shall pray to You
In a time when You may be found;
Surely in a flood of great waters
They shall not come near him.
A. 1st Sin is Acknowledged.,[Ps.51:3]
For I acknowledge my transgressions,
And my sin is always before me.
B. 2nd Sin is Confessed., [1 Jn.1:9;1Tim.2:5]
If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
1 Tim. 2:5
For there is one God and one Mediator between God and men, the Man Christ Jesus,
C. 3rd Sin is Forgiven.
1. God is the God of forgiveness.[Jn.8:1-11]
But Jesus went to the Mount of Olives.  Now early in the morning He came again into the temple, and all the
people came to Him; and He sat down and taught them.  Then the scribes and Pharisees brought to Him a woman
caught in adultery. And when they had set her in the midst,  they said to Him, "Teacher, this woman was caught in
adultery, in the very act.  Now Moses, in the law, commanded us that such should be stoned. But what do You say?"
 This they said, testing Him, that they might have something of which to accuse Him. But Jesus stooped down and
wrote on the ground with His finger, as though He did not hear.  So when they continued asking Him, He raised
Himself up and said to them, "He who is without sin among you, let him throw a stone at her first."  And again He
stooped down and wrote on the ground.  Then those who heard it, being convicted by their conscience, went out one
by one, beginning with the oldest even to the last. And Jesus was left alone, and the woman standing in the midst. 
When Jesus had raised Himself up and saw no one but the woman, He said to her, "Woman, where are those accusers
of yours? Has no one condemned you?"  She said, "No one, Lord." And Jesus said to her, "Neither do I condemn
you; go and sin no more."
2. When God forgives, there is no need to
worry. [Rm. 8:33-37]
Who shall bring a charge against God’s elect? It is God who justifies.  Who is he who condemns? It is Christ who
died, and furthermore is also risen, who is even at the right hand of God, who also makes intercession for us.  Who
shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril,
