Blessings to you, family and friends. Here’s your weekly update.
We had a wonderful time last week! We saw some faces we haven’t seen in a while. It was especially good to have Debra able to be back with us. Kim was also able to join us! Some friends of the Pastor, John and Nancy Vargas, came to visit and brought along cookies to share with everyone. We spent time praying for each other during Priscilla’s Sunday school lesson and Pastor David spoke about the necessity of repentance. We were still missing some people. Peep everyone in your prayers. I don’t know anyone in the church that isn’t facing some difficulty right now.
This week Linda and I have the honor of speaking to you again. I want to talk about King David. I don’t know, but I think he’s probably the best known Bible character besides Jesus Himself. From childhood we hear about how he killed Goliath. He is called a man after God’s own heart. He becomes the king of Israel and God promises him that His kingdom will last forever. Yet his record is not without blemish. We also know the story of Bathsheba. He was a warrior, prophet, singer-songwriter, musician, shepherd, and king. I think anyone alive today trying to claim “most interesting man in the world” faces some stiff competition from King David. His bio reads like an adventure novel. But what makes David so important is not the life he lived. It is that God chose him to fulfill the promises He made to Israel. Our theme is drawn from 2 Samuel 7:8-16. King David pre-figures Jesus for us in some very special ways. I hope you’ll come and join us as we look into the awesome work of God through his story.
