READ ACTS 13: 21-22

THIS STUDY ADDRESSES FOUR KEY CHARACTERISTICS OF DAVID’S LIFE

CHARACTERISTIC #1: ABSOLUTE FAITH IN GOD

1 SAMUEL 17: 37 “AND DAVID SAID, THE LORD WHO DELIVERED ME FROM THE PAW OF THE LION AND FROM THE PAW OF THE BEAR, HE WILL DELIVER ME FROM THE HAND OF THIS PHILISTINE.” SAUL SAID TO DAVID, “GO, AND MAY THE LORD BE WITH YOU.”

HEBREWS 10: 23: LET US HOLD FAST THE CONFESSION OF OUR HOPE WITHOUT WAVERING, FOR HE WHO PROMISED IS FAITHFUL.

IF A BELIEVER IS FAITHFUL TO DO HIS PART THERE IS NO QUESTION GOD WILL DO HIS

PART. READ 2 TIMOTHY 2: 11-12

CHARACTERISTIC #2 DAVID LOVED GOD’S LAW

PSALMS 119: 35: “MAKE ME WALK IN THE PATH FOR YOUR COMMANDMENTS, FOR I DELIGHT IN IT.”

PSALMS 16: 11: “YOU WILL MAKE KNOWN TO ME THE PATH OF LIFE. IN YOUR PRESENCE IS FULLNESS OF JOY. IN YOUR RIGHT HAND THERE ARE PLEASURES FOREVER.”

THE TEN COMMANDMENTS IS A GUIDE TO BELIEVE AND MODEL!

CHARACTERISTIC # 3 DAVID WAS TRULY REPENTANT

PSALMS 51: 2 “WASH ME CLEAN FROM MY GUILT. PURIFY ME FROM MY SIN.”

DAVID’S SIN WAS THE SIN OF SEXUAL MISCONDUCT WITH BATHSHEBA. HE RECOGNIZED THE GROSS ERROR OF HIS SIN BY A CLEANSING CONFESSION.

CHARACTERISTIC # 4 DAVID WAS TRULY THANKFUL

PSALMS 26: 6 (NLT) “I WASH MY HANDS TO DECLARE MY INNOCENCE. I COME TO YOUR ALTER, O LORD. “

THE HEART OF THIS VERSE EXPRESSES THE DESIRE TO WORSHIP GOD WITH INTEGRITY (CLEAN HANDS-CLEAN HEART).

APPLICATION: REPENTANCE FROM SIN BRINGS GOD’S FORGIVENESS AND UNCONDITIONAL LOVE.
