Sermon Passages: 1 Kings 2:1-12
David's heirs failed to be strong and faithful to God, but despite the sinfulness of David's son's, God was faithful to His covenant promise—to keep David's line and put a son of David on the throne forever. He sent Jesus, the greater son, who lived a sinless life and proved himself utterly faithful even unto death. We are called to run this race looking to no earthly leader, but to the Founder and Perfecter of our faith, to Jesus who goes before us and is beside us. We can run with endurance because He is our hope!
