Most of us know David as he kill the giant name Goliath that’s the average Christian familiarity about David …but why God picked David and (Why God referred to him as “a man after mine own heart.”)
Let us study of what the bible say about David attitude:
- David Had An Attitude of REPENTANCE a. When Nathan, the prophet, confronted David with his sins of adultery and murder, he repented. – Psalm 51:1-4, 9-10 b. The Lord is still looking for people with a penitent attitude who will acknowledge their sin and confess it to Him. – Romans 3:23, 1 John 1:8-2:3 c. We can become people after God’s own heart when we have an attitude of repentance toward God. – 2 Chron. 7:14 d. God is still LOOKING for people who will genuinely repent and serve Him.
- David Had An Attitude of WORSHIP a. David exemplify a life of worship – Psalm 103:1-5, Psalm 117:1-2 b. Our purpose in life is to EXALT our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. – Psalm 107:32, Psalm 34:3 c. God is still LOOKING for people who will worship and honor Him. An attitude of worship will enable us to become people “after God’s own heart”.
3. David Had An Attitude of SERVICE a. This was characteristic of David’s life. – Acts 13:22, Acts 13:36 i. As a boy, he faithfully tended his father’s sheep. ii. He fought against Goliath, defeating him and winning victory for God’s people. iii. As king he looked for ways to serve God and his fellow man. b. Jesus, Himself, took on the attitude of a servant. – Mark 10:45, Philip. 2:5-7 c. The Lord is still LOOKING for people who are willing to serve Him by serving their fellow man. This kind of attitude is essential if we are to become a people “after God’s own heart”.
CONCLUSION: If we would be people “after God’s own heart”, then let us be careful to maintain the attitudes of repentance, worship, and service. This is what the Lord is looking for in all of us.
