Worship this Sunday, July 21 at 9:30 AM: In this passage, David settles into his palatial home and starts to feel guilty. “Why is it that I get this great home, but the Ark of the Covenant still resides in a tent?” So he consults the prophet Nathan and asks whether building a temple for the Ark (symbolizing a dwelling place for God) is a good idea. Nathan gives an off-the-cuff, “Sure, if that’s what you want. I mean, God’s always with you, right?” But then Nathan receives and delivers a message from God that shakes David’s plan its core. Oh, there’s so much here! Why did God reject David’s offer? And what’s with the messianic prophesy at the end of this Oracle? Let’s dig into this passage and what it means for ministry and mission for us today.
