"David: The Man Behind the Resume" Led by Dave Nelson
Wednesdays, Sept 14 - Nov 16, 6:30am-8:00am @ La Madeleine (11930 Preston Rd, 75230)
Uprooted as a teenager from a shepherd's life and transformed by the Lord into a fearsome warrior and military leader, David quickly rose to national hero status and was so beloved that Israel's young women even wrote songs about him. He was in his 20's when he became king of Israel, establishing a 400-year kingdom of God on earth, in a role that ultimately would be fulfilled in Jesus Christ himself. What a resume David had but who was the man behind the resume? In this study we will explore the details of David's life and the depths of his soul poured out on the pages of Scripture. We will encounter a man much like ourselves, experiencing great successes in which he triumphed, but also personal failures that left him devastated. Perfectionists will not be comfortable with David but men who stumble often and turn to the Lord for help will find in David a friend and a brother who reminds us that our identity, security, and comfort are never to be found in a resume, but solely in the Lord Himself.
