Samuel 2019

Free*

Free*

Faced with three terrible options, King David chooses to fall into the hands of a gracious God. In his moment of repentance, he declares he will not present an offering to the Lord that cost him nothing. David understood the importance of counting the cost, a task Jesus would charge His followers with as well. Have you truly counted the cost of following Christ? It's a free gift that cost you everything.

Something Better

Something Better

After settling into his palace, David turns his attention to building a home suitable for God. Except, God doesn't want one. Not yet. Instead, God promises to build David a house--a dynasty--that will last forever. Because ultimately, God doesn't desire to dwell among His people, He desires to live in them. And it's this reality, Christ in you, that is the hope of glory.

Mercy

Mercy

If you want to be a man or woman after God’s own heart you are going to have to show mercy. I get the fact that we need wisdom for this. But we can ask god for that. He will give it liberally. I’ll give you a hint, err on the side of mercy. It is His mercy that made us His when we deserved eternal punishment. His mercy has given us eternity. Given that, don’t you think you should show mercy? Jesus said be merciful just like your Father.
