A Story of God’s Grace

A Story of God’s Grace

2 Samuel 9:1-13

This is a story of God’s Grace.  David demonstrated this grace through his actions.

David showed kindness to Mephibosheth, son of Jonathan

He restored all his land back to him

He invited him to eat at the King’s table as if he were of the family

Let’s look deeper and see how this coincides with God’s Grace to us.

G – Grafted into the Vine

Mephibosheth’s father and grandfather were killed in battle

He thought he was outcast

David brought him back into the Kingdom

God brings us back into the vine of eternal salvation if we ask for it

R – Restored Soul

David restored Mephibosheth’s land

God restores us in Jesus’s name

A – Adopted into the Family

David adopted Mephibosheth into the King’s family

God adopts us into His family when we are saved

C – Cleansed of Sin

Mephibosheth thought himself unclean, a dog, a cripple

David blessed him in the name of his father

God cleanses us when we are saved

E – Elected into Everlasting Life

David made sure to provide everything Mephibosheth needed

God does the same for us, we are invited to dwell in the House of the Lord forever

Now for our part.  God’s Grace was so remarkable to David that he was passionate about sharing it with everyone in his Kingdom.  The question is, do we have that same passion?
