2 Samuel 7:1-17
King David is brought to life
in this dramatic narrative sermon preached February 15, 2015 by Larry Mudd at the Manhattan Church of Christ. Many themes from David's journey are explored from the Books of Samuel, from Yahweh's calling David as a young shepherd boy through to Yahweh's extension of forgiveness to David after the king's infidelity with Bathsheba. The importance of faith, of reliance upon God and of seeking His presence is a theme throughout David's life, as well as his recognition that Yahweh is the source of all victory and goodness in the life of Israel and of her king, David. David reflects on the covenant Yahweh makes with him, as well as on the practical matters of how to deal with boredom.
