What do you do when the consequences of your bad choices come crushing down upon you? When we pick up with chapter 29, we find David in a position where he is going to have to join the Philistine army in battle against his own people. His lack of faith in God’s protection and his deception of King Achish of Gath have brought he and his men to this critical point. Thankfully, David could never put himself beyond God’s ability to rescue, and God’s mercy is exactly what we see in this text.
Do you long for and end to all the wickedness and corruption of this creation? Do you wrestle with your own flesh and cry out for the day when you will stand in glory, completely free from this body of death? Then Rejoice! For Jesus Christ is the Lion of the Tribe of Judah, the Root of Jesse, and the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world. In this first of three sermons from Revelation 5, we explore how Christ is the exclusive Savior of the world by virtue of his atoning work.
