David – Week 1

David – Week 1

Today, we start a new series on the life of David. He was a shepherd, warrior, fugitive, king, father, and a man after God’s own heart. Even in his moments of faithlessness and failure, David found redemption through repentance and God’s forgiveness. Today, we learn how David rose to power through King Saul’s failure, and we see how God can use the ordinary to accomplish the incredible.
