God thoughts on "houses" are much different than ours. This sermon teachs us about how the gospel is incorporated into God's promise to build a house for David. This sermon is all about our incarnational, gracious, and forever king, Jesus Christ.
Certain things that God teaches us in our time on Earth, time and time again. Then go out into the world, be salt and light in this world, and be a shining example of what God teaches you and make people thirsty for Christ.
