2 Samuel 12-13, Luke 1:57-80
Such a powerful story
i love this story :)
If God loves us why did he take the child’s life away?? sorry I’m new to this whole thing?
I’m partially new to this too but I think that in the Old Testament, Christ hadn’t come as a substitute for our sins and so they paid for the consequences of their sins. I’m glad we have Christ because I might not have made it this far.
But God also told him that he had forgiven him. And I think he proved that by loving and making Solomon King.
Also another thing; because God sent his only Son, Jesus to die for our sins, He wants us to pay for the sins that we commit. So, in David’s case, God punished him by killing his offspring, but He is such a merciful God, that he didn’t kill David, which he could’ve done. But, because he loves us all unconditionally, he gives us a chance to ask and pray for forgiveness, even if it means loosing something or going though trials and tribulations. In the end, with God, we can grow and overcome from the battles and things we face, which will make us stronger believers in God and his wonderful Word.
How beautiful is Zechariah’s prophecy ❤️
I love that although David messed up and his family had so much scandal God still used him to make a way for Jesus later on. My God is merciful and forgiving.
“7 Nathan said to David, “You are the man!” How quick we can be to judge others and totally ignore the sin in our own lives. That line got me this morning.
