Danny is sometimes asked to preach at St Andrew’s Baptist Church and recently he gave a sermon entitled ‘Three Quick Lessons from King David’.
Although David was God’s anointed King over the Israelites, his reign took quite some time to come to fruition. However, when he was finally recognised as King over a united Israel, his passion and zeal for the Lord were on display in subtle (and not so subtle!) ways. From 2 Samual 5:17 – 6:23 there are three intriguing incidents in quick succession that have timeless application, despite being challenging reading in our culture.
The main points could be given the sub-headings below:
- it is healthy to take every situation to the Lord in prayer
- be led by God’s anointing rather than personal ambition or need
- appearances are not important to the Lord
