2 Samuel 2

Good Morning “Those Who Serve The One True King.”  Today we are in 2 Samuel 2.  
David is Anointed as King over Judah.  Then, in typical “Giant Conquering” form David sends a message to Jabesh Gilead thanking them for their kindness to Saul and urging them to serve David as king.  Jabesh Gilead was Saul’s biggest supporters so David reaches for them first.  

All of Israel is going to have to decide.  Who will they serve.  David the one anointed by God, or someone  or something of their choosing.

The same decision faces us each morning when we wake up.  
Who will we serve?  Neither can we serve two masters.  

David was offering them mercy and kindness through The One True King.  By Grace we have the opportunity to serve the One True King through the blood of Jesus shed on The Cross for our sins.  Because of His mercy we are charged to offer ourselves to Him as a living sacrifice (Romans 12:1).

Will we serve Him, or someone or something else.  Will we follow our flesh, or The Spirit?  “For the desires of the flesh are against the Spirit, and the desires of the Spirit are against the flesh, for these are opposed to each other, to keep you from doing the things you want to do.” Galatians 5:17

Don’t miss the bigger picture here.  “… if serving the Lord seems undesirable to you, then choose for yourselves this day who you will serve… As for me and my house we will serve The Lord.”  
Joshua 24:15

Love you all!  Dig in!
