Responding to the King's Kindness

May 21, 2023 Speaker: Jordan Gowing Series: 2 Samuel | A Better King

Topic: Sunday Morning Teaching Passage: 2 Samuel 10:1–19, Psalm 2:1–12

How should we respond to the Lord's kindness in the gospel? Join us this Sunday at CrossWinds Church in Spencer as we consider the answer from 2 Samuel 10.

Sermon Discussion

  1. What is one takeaway from the sermon and one question that you had after hearing the sermon?
  2. Read Psalm 2:1–3. What is the heart posture of these verses? How do you see this same heart posture in your own life?
  3. Read Acts 4:23–30. How do the apostles take comfort in the rejection of King Jesus for their own rejection? How does this give us confidence and courage when we face opposition?
  4. Read Psalm 2:4–12. What is God’s perspective on those who are against him (4–9)? What is the warning of this passage (10–12)?
  5. Read 1 Samuel 11:1–2; 2 Samuel 10:1–2. What makes David’s “kindness” so surprising? Take some time to marvel at the surprising kindness of the Lord Jesus in the gospel.
  6. Read 2 Samuel 10:12. Consider this definition of faith based off Joab’s words: “Faith is knowing that the Lord is good, and that he does what is good.” How does this definition help in difficult or challenging circumstances?
  7. How is God calling you to respond to his kindness this week?
