1 Samuel 16-17; Psalm 23; Luke 1:26-33; Romans 1:1-6.

In 1 Kings 11:4 & Acts 13:22, David is described as being a man with a ‘heart after God’. It’s a beautiful expression and reminds us of the love Israel’s most famous king had for the Lord. Not that David was perfect – far from it! However, the promised Messiah would be a descendant of David and when He came would fulfil all that He promised and pointed to.
