Born A Sinner
Psalm 51:5 (KJB) Behold, I was shapen in iniquity; and in sin did my mother conceive me.
David was heartbroken in this verse. Not because somebody had done something to him, but because of what he chose to do to himself. It is quite an eye opening picture a man can get when he realizes his natural standing before the holiness and righteousness of God.
A man cannot truly look to God without seeing a sincere picture of himself. David could clearly see the nakedness of his sin. Not only that but he understood that he was born a sinner, just like you and me were born with evil and darkness at work in our natural heart.
Every child of God should take some time to contemplate upon the goodness and grace of God, thereby placing yourself in proper spiritual perspective as compared to the holiness and righteousness of God. A sinner saved by grace and reliant upon the goodness of God.
