Hebron - Session 6
Session 6 – Hebron -2013
In this session, the focus is on the disposition of David’s heart. The life of David teaches us that until one learns how to rule their own spirit and personal life, one cannot rule nations.
Even though King Saul was determined to kill David, David’s heart was such that he never regarded Saul as his enemy, but as the anointed one of Israel. In order for us, the church, to become the people that God wants us to be in today’s world, we need to undertake a ‘forensic analysis’ of heart issues. There is a large percentage of the church that would prefer not to deal with their closet issues; the internal, invisible issues of the heart. David’s heart was exposed to the point where his enemy was exterminated, and when King Saul had died, the purity, integrity, and transparency of the heart of David was revealed.
The Church of Christ must embrace the Hebronic culture, but the prerequisite is that we must first deal with the issues of the heart, acknowledging that the state of one’s heart ought not to be determined by circumstances. David was treated resentfully by King Saul, yet David showed no animosity towards him. He kept his heart pure.
The people defected to David because they were motivated by the purity of his heart and the amazing grace upon his life.
