April 23, 2023 Speaker: Jordan Gowing Series: 2 Samuel - A Better King

Topic: Sunday Morning Teaching Passage: 2 Samuel 7:1–17

What do God's promises to David in 2 Samuel 7 have to do with us? Join us this Sunday at CrossWinds Church in Spirit Lake as we consider the answer from 2 Samuel 7.

Sermon Discussion

  1. Why is 2 Samuel 7 such an important passage in the Bible? What does it teach us about God’s rescue plan for his creation?
  2. What is one takeaway from the sermon and one question that you had after hearing the sermon?
  3. Read Genesis 3:15; 12:2–3; Exodus 19:4–6; 2 Samuel 7:16; Jeremiah 31:31–34; 33:14–16; Ephesians 3:4–6. What do these passages teach us about the unfolding “mystery” of God’s plan?
  4. Read 2 Samuel 7:1–3; Deuteronomy 12:5, 10–11. Why does David want to build a temple? What is admirable about his desire? What would it look like for you to have a similar resolve when we experience “rest”?
  5. Read 2 Samuel 7:9–11; Genesis 12:2; 15:18. What is the significance of God’s promises here? What does this tell us about God’s overarching plan of salvation?
  6. What is “prophetic perspective”? In what way does this approach to prophecy help us be faithful to the Bible? Can you think of other examples of partial and complete fulfillment?
  7. Read 2 Samuel 7:12–16. How do these promises apply to the line of Davidic kings? How do they culminate in the Lord Jesus?
  8. Read Revelation 22:4–5. What do we have to look forward to? How does this change your approach to life this week?
