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!

We welcome you to Stone's Hill today!

A typical Stone's Hill service has music (feel free to sing out); some announcements (things that are upcoming that you can be a part of); a message out of the Bible (God speaks to us through his Word); and an opportunity for you to respond to the message (either immediately in the case of a decision that needs to be made OR in the future as you live out the message in your life.)

So relax and enjoy your morning! We're so glad you are here!

Last week, we talked about...

Four steps: To Doing What You Thought You’d Never Do
Neglecting our duty. When we’re not doing the higher thing we should be doing, it makes us unhappy and vulnerable. In bed, rather than in the battle?
Indulging our eyes. God’s provisions aren’t enough, so I’ll focus on something else. Hyper-focused on the wrong thing?
Betraying our spouses. We begin taking our relational, emotional, sexual energy to other sources or people. Diverting your attention elsewhere?
Hiding our sin. Cover it all up. But it will take its toll and the price will leave you broken. Afraid no one will love you in your badness?
You are those four steps away from doing what you think you would never do.

This Week
Four Steps to Freedom: you are these four steps away from being absolutely and totally free from your past and the present fear.
Step One: Exposed by God’s Word. God comes to you through his word, seeking you out, exposing your sin, inviting you to leave the road that leads to death and step towards freedom.

Step Two: Helped by God’s People. First, Nathan challenges David (12:7). Second, Nathan hears David’s confession. Third, Nathan reassures David.

Step Three: Welcomed by God’s Grace. God’s word issues a call to you to come to him in repentance. But to come, you need to be confident that God will welcome you and forgive you.

Step Four: Restored to God’s Service. The story began with David neglecting his duty as king. It ends with Joab calling him to the battlefront (v 26–28). David goes to lead his people to victory (v 29–31).
