Men’s Ministry Study 2018 - 2019: The Life of David

At our Wednesday evening gatherings, we will be studying the Life of David together this year . There is much to learn about being a man in relationship with God from David. While it was said he was a man after God’s own heart, he also made some grave mistakes. Yet he continued in his commitment to the LORD until the end.

To inform our conversations, we’ll be using the sermon series on David by Pastor Tim Keller to help us along. Click below for sermon audio or for the text. Please listen or read through the sermon before you come on Wednesday nights. This will enable us to dig deeply into God’s Word and explore David’s life together.

A Man after god’s own heart

1 Samuel
16:1–13

Here Pastor Tim Keller introduces the series on the Life of David by explaining the best practice for approaching the Old Testament. Often we come to the characters in the Old Testament and we mine the details of their lives for moral lessons. Tim points to a different way, a life-giving, faithful way of coming to the life of David, a man after God’s own heart.
