Message Title: David and the Ark: why Jerusalem mattered

by: Pastor Gary Yochum
Scripture Reference: 2 Samuel 6
Tags: old testament, 1 samuel

Central thought: Getting the ark to Jerusalem would solidify the Kingdom of Israel & place God at it’s center.

I. Faulty first steps: God-honoring plans must be matched with God-obeying practices (1-5)

            Good motive               Careless practices

II. Stern penalty: unholy acts anger a holy God (6-11)

  • Every disobedience violates God’s holiness
  • David’s reaction: instinctive & instructive

III. Continuing the journey: the ark heads home (12-15)

IV. The ark finds its resting place – God is exalted (16-19)

V. David loves God more than he loves the approval of man (20-23)

  • Complaining pushes away blessing
  • Love for God excites demonstration of that love
  • Fear of man’s disfavor enlists disfavor of God

Gospel implications in 2 Samuel 6

  • The Ark of God represented the Throne of God (2)
  • The gospel never waivers on God’s justice (7)
  • The judgment of God is meant to incite fear of God (9)
  • God blesses those who honor His presence – and judges those who do not (16-23)
