Read with me in Psalm 51 where David appealed to God’s love and compassion as he petitioned the Lord to forgive him by grace and cleanse him from sin.
In Psalm 51:1(a) we see God’s unfailing love for His servant and His compassion for the helpless, were the basis for David’s appeal for mercy. It is also recognized that David did not deserve forgiveness. God’s forgiveness is by His grace alone.

John 3:7-8 “Do not marvel that I said to you, ‘You must be born again.’ The wind blows where it wishes, and you hear the sound of it, but cannot tell where it comes from and where it goes. So is everyone who is born of the Spirit.”
THE NEW BIRTH PROCESS:
1. Realize that all have sinned and need a Savior.
Romans 3:23, “All have sinned, and come short of the glory of God.”
1 John 1:8, “If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves and the truth is not in us.”
2. Repent of sin.
Luke 13:3, “Unless you repent you will all likewise perish.”
Acts 3:19, “Repent therefore and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out.”
