For I acknowledge my transgressions, and my sin is always before me. Against You, You only, have I sinned, and done this evil in Your sight. (Psalm 51:3-4a)
We don’t get to the root of the human problem until we look at the vertical: “Against You and You alone.” He didn’t say, “I have sinned against Uriah or the kingdom,” because he is so overwhelmed by the vertical. Here you have both the horizontal and vertical aspects. If we’re only dealing with the horizontal, it’s human to human. But this is not the case—there is something vertical about sin. Thus, sin must be dealt with. How do you deal with your sins? How do you confess them?
In Living in the In-Between Times, Pastor Ralph Douglas West brings the story of the Old Testament prophet Samuel to life, showing you how God speaks in your “in betweens” and what it looks like to live faithfully in these seasons of waiting and wondering.
