(See 1 Samuel 9—31; 2 Samuel 5:1–7; 2 Sam 23:8–39)
God’s people were unfaithful, resulting in their exile in Babylonia. The tragic end of Saul is an example of the dreadful consequences to infidelity to God. He too was unfaithful. By contrast, the faithful heart of David begins to attract the whole nation toward him. He names leaders with their followers who gather into a great unity around King David.
Picture in your mind this crescendo of support. Reflect upon your own life and those who are one with you in their Christian walk. In turn, are you a support for others to find strength and unity in the Body of Christ? In the spiritual warfare waged day by day, the Lord does not want you to be minimal in the experience of prayerful intercession and community love. You are not meant to be only a survivor, but as Paul, “more than a conqueror” (Romans 8:37).
