A Man After God's Own Heart


Acts 13:22

The Story
Three thousand years ago, God chose David to be the king of Israel.
  • Out of all the sons of Jesse, the favor of God landed on David.
  • David was the youngest son of a poor farmer from the tiny village of Bethlehem.
  • David was not even respected by his own family.
  • Davis was a nobody living in a family of nobodies.
But by the grace of God
  • David became the greatest king in the history of the nation of Israel.
  • David became an ancestor of the LORD Jesus Christ.
  • David was listed among the great heroes of the faith in Hebrew 11.
  • David received great promises and remarkable blessings from the hand of God.
  • But... greatest of all – David became a man after God's own heart.
Lessons
  • David was not perfect. He failed and he failed big.
  • But David was quick to confess and he manifested genuine heart repentance.
  • Through David we learn about obedience, faith and worship.
  • Through David, we learn how to be a man after God's own heart.

  1. David is one of my favorite Bible characters because of His faith in the Lord and His willingness to repent. His life, his fall and restoration, have been such an inspiration in my own life.
