This Sunday: “David and the Ark”
I hope you enjoyed Thanksgiving! With Christmas right around the corner, Tyler and I are planning a series of sermons that will consider the three “offices” of Christ—prophet, priest, and king. We’ll get that started the first Sunday of December.
This Sunday, however, we’ll be in 2 Samuel 6, a chapter about the gravity of God’s presence. On the one hand, a man named Uzzah is struck dead for his lack of reverence. On the other, David embarrasses his wife with his lack of inhibition in worship. As we’ll see, it’s Christ who overcomes our faults and brings us into God’s presence with joy.
As part of our time together, we’ll also see a brother baptized. I hope to see you all this Sunday!
