The Promise of Easter
The Scripture reading is from 2 Samuel 7:1-17. After David brought the Ark of the Covenant to Jerusalem and the land was at peace David desired to build a temple for the Ark and the presence of God. It sounded like a good idea to Nathan; but they preceded without consulting God and God quickly spoke to Nathan and David about his real desires. God clearly desires to walk among his people and he doesn’t need a building to do that. And God’s words to them clearly point to Jesus and the promise of the resurrection. “The Promise of Easter” is part of our David, A Man Loved by God, Part 2 series.
