In this sermon we see that Human depravity reaches further into David’s offspring reaping rape, deadly revenge and inept leadership so that the throne of the Lord’s anointed is under threat from within its very own heart, despite appearances.

Sermon – How the Mighty Have Fallen (2 Sam 1)

In the historical book of 2 Samuel from the Old Testament in the Bible, we enter the world of King David as he ascends to the throne of Israel as God’s chosen King. We see both his wisdom and foolishness, his pride and his humility, his amazing strength and hopeless weaknesses. We see a truly human leader who desperately needs the God who is with him.2 Samuel Artwork

This sermon shows that amidst the distress of Israel’s defeat and the death of their king, David does not seek to profit from the death of Saul his enemy. Rather, David’s public lament shows the depths of his love for Jonathan and respect for God’s anointed. We see David more concerned for the honour of Israel than his for his own honour, giving us hope of a good and humble king.
