Where Could I Carry My Shame?

by David Robinson

by Joe Boot

Take Heed Lest You Fall

by David Robinson

March 8, 2020 | 2 Samuel 11

The account of David and Bathsheba is familiar; however, we must feel the weight of David’s sin. What he did was evil in the eyes of the Lord. The same sin is crouching at our door. Only Christ can save us from our sins.

 

Givers and Takers

by Russ Hiebert

March 1, 2020 | 2 Samuel 9

The story of David and Mephibosheth answers the question of what makes someone a giver, while the story of David and Ziba tells us what makes someone a taker.

 

Sitting Before the Lord

by David Robinson

February 23, 2020 | 2 Samuel 7:18-8:18

The House of God

by Joe Boot

Rejoice with Trembling

by David Robinson

February 9, 2020 | 2 Samuel 6

When the ark of the covenant was brought up to Jerusalem, Uzzah died, David danced, and Michal despised. The narrative of 2 Samuel calls on us to “serve the Lord with fear, and rejoice with trembling” (Psalm 2:11).

 

It’s Not About You

by Russ Hiebert

The demise of the house of King Saul and the ascent of King David's shows that the consequences of our actions and how we live our lives affect not just us alone but the people around us as well.

 

Shall the Sword Devour Forever?

by David Robinson

January 26, 2020 | 2 Samuel 2:12-3:39

The events surrounding men like Abner and Joab in 2 Samuel 2 and 3 are a reminder to us that the Kingdom of God, what God is doing in history, is not merely some theoretical reality but is something that takes place on the ground, in and among the lives of real people.

 

The Mustard Seed Kingdom

by David Robinson

January 19, 2020 | 2 Samuel 2:1-17

Jesus compared the kingdom of God to a mustard seed. It starts small. David’s kingdom in Judah starts small, but it has the marks of the kingdom of God: small beginnings; the priority of prayer; benediction and invitation; and opposition.

 

Learning Lament

by David Robinson

January 12, 2020 | 2 Samuel 1

Although we would expect the death of King Saul to bring relief and joy to David, it instead brings grief and lament which is actually a Godly response and shows that David, once again, is a man after God's own heart.
