May 1, 2016 | Acts 13:22-23 |
One of the great heroes in the Bible was the Shepherd King named David. He is the only one in Scripture to be called a “man after God’s own heart.” There are more chapters in the Old Testament about David than anyone else. And this poet, musician, shepherd, warrior, king has more mentions in the New Testament than any other Old Testament figure. Yet, David wasn’t perfect. He was a man after God’s heart, but still a man nonetheless. David was zealous, humble and focused, yet he was still a sinner. The real beauty and purpose of his life is how it points to Jesus, the real hero of the Bible and of all creation.
