No question about it. King David remains among the brightest lights of the Bible. So significant was David that God set aside an entire book of the Old Testament to cover David’s 40 year reign…from his highest pinnacle of achievement to his lowest valley of misery and defeat.
Discover from the tragic life of one of the Bible's greatest examples of failed potential just what it means when we don't take God seriously.
Grace can mean unmerited favour—extending special favour to someone who doesn’t deserve it, who hasn’t earned it, and who can never repay it. Every once in a while, we come across a scene in Scripture and we stand amazed at such amazing grace.
Few individuals are better examples of grace than Mephibosheth, a forgotten and obscure man who was convinced he would live out his days in a wasteland. How wrong he was!

Join us as we worship the Lord, whose love and light break through the darkness. As Pastor Chuck continues his series on walking in integrity through adversity, we will look at another lesser-known person in Scripture—one who is eclipsed in the shadow of his better-known wife, Bathsheba. Listen as we meet and learn from the life of Uriah.
Moral foundations almost always collapse through slow erosion. But once they collapse, not even mighty men can stand.

Pastor Chuck Swindoll will conclude the story we began last time, directing our attention to the dramatic scene where Nathan the prophet is sent by the Lord on an unenviable mission: to confront King David in his sin.
Family feuds, wayward kids, parent-child clashes, husband-wife disagreements, and other in-house pressures have a way of breaking our spirits and stealing our joy. And no one is immune who compromises with God’s standard—not even a king such as David. In this study we witness the monarch’s misery as the sword of consequences falls on him and his family.
