Sermons about Mephibosheth
Have you ever felt unworthy or unwanted? Have you ever faced a situation that ended differently than you expected? Today we began our Easter sermon series called TRIUMPH with a message called "COVENANT OF GRACE" which depicts a story of an individual who had to face these same questions yet through grace that was extended to him, he went from being an outcast to eating at the king's table.
If a person is going to follow Jesus, he or she is eventually going to have to wrestle with the BIble's teaching on generosity. God wants us to be generous people; and while generosity sounds good in theory, in practice it can be a somewhat difficult virtue to live out.
Mephibosheth was a man "lame in both feet". His physical limitations were symbolic of a life that could accomplish little. But when David seeks him out, he brings him wealth, status, and makes him family. A "loser" is transformed by an unexpected deposit of grace. And we can be changed by that same, counter-intuitive concept of grace as well.
Mephibosheth is a name that we can hardly pronounce, let alone connect with on a deep level! In this message, however, we realize that Mephibosheth's story is really OUR story. In this message, Rev. Rick Hunter reminds us that, through Jesus the greater David, we have been carried to a table of God's grace!
