14 Some Lessons Learned (Romans 15:4)  David’s life foreshadows the Christian’s race that Paul described in 1 Corinthians 9:24 – 27.  David’s life illustrates how:  Faithfulness ≠ Perfection (only Jesus met this standard);  Trust in God; not in men.  Lust and pride can lead to sin (James 1: );  Confessing the sin and turning from the attitude and behavior that caused it restores the relationship with God;  Still, there is a consequence of sin that must be endured, even with the act of repentance;  God is merciful, fair, and just; when the totality of David’s life was evaluated by Him, David found favor (Acts 2);  David should be appreciated for his role in the plan of salvation as Peter articulated on the Day of Pentecost (Acts 2);  On average, the Christian race is a marathon, not a sprint.

15 1 Peter 1:24, 25 (New American Standard Bible) 24 For ALL FLESH IS LIKE GRASS, AND ALL ITS GLORY LIKE THE FLOWER OF GRASS. THE GRASS WITHERS, AND THE FLOWER FALLS OFF, 25 BUT THE WORD OF THE LORD ENDURES FOREVER. And this is the word which was preached to you. I Kings 1 & 2: The End of David’s Life (Contrast 1 Kings 1& 2 with 1 Samuel 16: 12)
