Acts 13:22 After removing Saul, he made David their king. God testified concerning him: ‘I have found David son of Jesse, a man after my own heart; he will do everything I want him to do.’
A man after God’s own heart – David
David, who is one of the most famous person in the Bible. He is loved by God. In the Bible, there is no man is more than David because he received the title “A man after My own heart” by God. So, many people want to name after him. A few years ago, 35% of man used the name ‘David’. So we can understand that David is the most popular person in the Bible.
For many people, David is considered as a brave boy who fight for Goliath. However, God chose him and he expressed His mind.
Did you see the movie ‘David and Goliath, 2015’? It is not a famous movie, but this poster reminds me about David. David is a really small boy but he is so brave that he fought for his country against the giant – Goliath. If he had no faith to God in him, he just see the situation and forget about it. But he chose David and give him plentiful grace.
God sent a lot of prophets to complete His will. Among them, David is special prophet. He is so called “A man after My own heart”. What is heart? It means ‘same mind’. He will show us His will with him. Prophecy is a kind of message that is from God. Can you see the meaning of the memo if you don’t read it? You may say “No”. If you don’t know about him, You cannot even understand God’s will. We can sure it.
If we don’t know His will, can we do it? I don’t think so. If you are really child of God, real christian, you have to know God’s will.
Luke, who wrote the book of Acts, received Holy spirit from God and said David is the good model of real christian.
Christianity is a religion of love. If we really want to know God’s love to us, how much David loved his son. And if we want to have the lovely mind of God, we have to inspect his lovely mind to his sons. So, I want to find the articles about David, in vain. So, I decide to write an article about him.
