After we commit a terrible sin, we feel that God won’t have anything to do with us ever again. To answer this awful fear that all humanity shares, Jesus said, “Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do” (Luke 23:34) and “Eloi, Eloi, lama sabachthani?”—which means, “My God, my God, why have you forsaken Me?” (Mark 15:34). Jesus said this so that we may never have to pray it ourselves. What David feared in verse 11, Jesus endured. Nevertheless, because we are children of God, He will never abandon us to the consequences of our sin.
