SGA Pic of Christ lesson 30

Lesson 30
II Samuel 9:1-13

Saul; the people's king, had been rejected by God for disobedience and rebellion (I Sam. 15:26); and David, a man after God's own heart (I Sam. 13:14), now reigned over all Israel. One of David's first acts as king was to inquire of the house of Saul, "Is there yet any left of the house of Saul, that I might show him kindness for Jonathan's sake?" Ziba, a former servant of the house of Saul, reported to David that Mephibosheth, son of Jonathan, yet lived and was a cripple, lame on both feet. David sent and fetched Mephibosheth and gave him the estate of Saul with many servants and a place at the king's table all the days of his life.

This is a beautiful picture of the grace and mercy of God toward unworthy sinners for Christ's sake, which can be told in SEVEN words.
