Murder and Mourning — Part One

Morning Service
Nov 15, 2020

Learning of Abner’s peaceful release, David’s army commander, Joab, confronted the king, sent for Abner, then cruelly murdered him upon his return. Did Joab really care about the kingdom, or simply his status within it? Exploring this question, Alistair Begg notes that the ways of the servant are not always the ways of the king. When we’re tempted to believe our plans are best, Scripture reminds us that King Jesus is faithful to His plan and all comings and goings are under His sovereign hand.

Topics: Biblical Figures, Christ as King, Faithfulness of God, Providence of God, Trusting God
