A king. A warrior. A believer . . . . A man. David was still only human; despite his highs, he had lows. His story is one of a second chance, God’s love, and God’s greatness. It’s a relatable story Pastor Greg Laurie tells us in his brand-new series, The House of David.


Looking at David’s story, the real message is not the greatness of David but the greatness and love of God who gave David a second chance.

David is the only man to be called “a man after God’s own heart.”

God’s selection of David was so unexpected (pay careful attention), but the Lord is showing us the kind of person He is looking for.

God is actively looking for people to use.

God found that man in David. Will He find it in you?

God’s way becomes plain when we start walking in it. Obedience to revealed truth guarantees guidance in matters unrevealed.

Why was Jesus born in Bethlehem?

Because Jesus was from the family tree of David.

“There remains yet the youngest, and there he is, keeping the sheep.” —1 Samuel 16:11

Those who are rejected by men often become beloved of God.

1. God uses ordinary people.

Saul was attractive on the outside, but inside he was vain, shallow, and devoid of true integrity.

Man looks at the outward; God looks on the inward.

A man once said to D. L. Moody, “Moody, the world has yet to see what God can do with and in and through the man who is wholly dedicated to Him.”

2. God is looking for truly spiritual people.

David was not only practical; he was also deeply committed to God.

“My heart is fixed, O God; my heart is fixed.” —Psalm 57:7

“Our greatest danger in life is in permitting the urgent things to crowd out the important.” 

“Is it an alarm or a calling that gets you out of bed in the morning?”

3. David was a faithful man.

Just because God has called you to be a leader does not mean you are ready.

Just as David both provided for and defended those sheep, God did the same for him.

David longed for closeness to God.

David was not perfect; he was very flawed.

God wants to give you a second chance.
