Pastor Cary Cox, from 1 Samuel 23 and 24. Saul is obsessively pursuing David, but this is only to secure his own kingdom. So he’s really pursuing himself. David, on the other hand, is NOT pursuing the kingdom. He values something more. David chooses to wait on God and do what honors him, though this means a longer, harder road for David. He is pursuing God. Do we treasure God, or what God can give us?
Despite our sin and rebellion, God has pursued us in Jesus Christ, the great Son of David.
