May 14, 2023 Speaker: Jordan Gowing Series: 2 Samuel | A Better King

Topic: Sunday Morning Teaching Passage: 2 Samuel 9:1–13

What can the life of King David teach us about the heart of God in the gospel? Join us at CrossWinds Church in Spencer as we consider the answer from 2 Samuel 9.

Sermon Discussion

  1. How familiar were you with this story before this week?
  2. What is one takeaway from the sermon and one question that you had after hearing the sermon?
  3. Read Deuteronomy 7:9. In our sermon “kindness” was defined this way: “[Kindness in the Old Testament] is a rock-solid commitment to act and live in a certain way.” How does God describe himself in Deuteronomy 7? How does this help us understand what “kindness” looks like?
  4. Read 2 Samuel 9:3–4; Ephesians 2:1–4. What do these verses reveal to us about Mephibosheth’s sorry state when David calls for him? What do the verses from Ephesians reveal about our sorry state before Jesus?
  5. Read 2 Samuel 9:7. What are the three things David promises to Mephibosheth? What is the significance of each?
  6. Read Ephesians 2:4–7; Romans 5:10; Ephesians 2:4–7; Romans 8:31–32, 38–39. What are the parallels between 2 Samuel 9 and the gospel? 
  7. What would an appropriate response to 2 Samuel 9 be this week?
