Stone's Hill Community Church
More is written about the life of David than any other human character in the Bible. He’s mentioned a thousand times in the Bible. What all can we say about him on the front end? Shepherd, fugitive, politician, king, poet, musician, prophet, warrior, friend, lover, father, sinner. He’s David, Jesse’s youngest son, the youngest of seven brothers, the family runt. Youthful shepherd of Bethlehem; and ironically a giant-slayer. Teenage king-elect. Composer of Psalms. King Saul’s personal musician. Jonathan’s closest friend. He rose from a hunted fugitive to king of Israel. And he fell from champion in battle to aged and troubled monarch. David – a man of glorious triumph, yet great tragedy. Uniquely gifted, but human to the core; strong in battle, but weak at home. Welcome to Stone's Hill and the King David series!

Leadership and Lordship
We’re going to talk about two things today: LEADERSHIP AND LORDSHIP. How are you going to lead? Who is going to be Lord of your life? These are two of the biggest questions you’ll ever answer in your life. Your answer will impact everything!

What Does "Anointed" Leadership Look Like? (2 Samuel 5:1-5) Good with people. Great at leadership. Exceptional in character. God-focused.

There’s so much energy in these passages! God was with David. They saw three things in David:

Shepherd v.2 (to feed) – You will shepherd my people Israel. David understood how to get stuff done, but he learned to put people first. You could say that he lived with the flocks and cared for them.

Ruler v.2 (to protect) – You were the one who led Israel on their military campaigns. David knew how to fight a battle, but he understood leadership even more.

King v.3 (to envision) – The king made a covenant with them at Hebron before the Lord. David wielded political power, but he had character to go with it.

Would you like to make a greater impact? Develop relationships. Demonstrate leadership. Determine character.

What does Lordship look like in real life? David’s life points to a Greater David, who wants to be Lord.

1. Rather than pretending I’m fully surrendered to the King; I’ll give my life over to a regular lifestyle of confession and forgiveness. The King wants me to be honest how I feel about Him without fear of reprisal. He wants me to acknowledge that I resist Him sometimes. David does this after Bathsheba.

2. Rather than cherishing all the other things I’m loyal to in life besides the King; I’ll seek to demote all of these loves in order to be free from their captivating hold and thus have more of me available for the King to use as He sees fit. Saul did this for David.

3. Rather than fixating on my personal goals to the exclusion of the King’s hopes for me; I’ll discover the things that are most important to the King and replace my old priorities with Kingdom-oriented goals. Abigail did this for David.

4. Rather than excluding the possibility that the King is personally involved in my life; I’ll welcome the possibility that the King can commission others to speak His Kingdom truth into my life. Samuel did this with David.

5. Rather than defining my identity on other things besides the King; I’ll let Him tell me who I am, why I’m here, and what I could do to lift him up with my whole person and life. Goliath did this for David.
