First, ask God to see something you can apply to your life.
Then, read 2 Samuel 9.
Then, write down something you can apply to your life.
Then, read what I wrote:
- Historical — David invited Mephibosheth, the grandson of his enemy Saul and son of his best friend Jonathan, to live in the royal city & eat at his royal table for the rest of his life.
- Doctrinal — Mephibosheth pictures every follower of Jesus: unable to walk on his own (spiritually), born into a fallen family (spiritually), yet invited by the king to live as an adopted son of the king (who pictures Jesus).
- Inspirational — I am a spiritually-adopted child of King Jesus (see Romans 8:15) who is now a king myself (see Revelation 1:6) at the Royal Table (see Revelation 3:20).
