It's Go Time

1 Samuel 17:31-40  (ID: 3396)

As Israel stood paralyzed with fear before Goliath, David’s words put this defiant enemy in his rightful place before God. When David volunteered to go and face the giant, though, Saul doubted the young shepherd. Making his case for confronting Goliath, David expressed trust not in weapons, armor, or himself but in the Lord. Alistair Begg examines this exchange between Israel’s spiritually depleted ruler and its Spirit-filled future king, directing our gaze to the ultimate Savior and King, Jesus Christ.


31When the words that David spoke were heard, they repeated them before Saul, and he sent for him.
