The Pastor’s Letter – September 21, 2021 – Standing Before Saul

Wherefore Saul sent messengers unto Jesse, and said, Send me David thy son, which is with the sheep.

1 Samuel 16:19

Dear Church and Friends,

Do you feel confused about why you are where you are? I’m sure David felt that way too! He’s in Saul’s court to be the medicine for Saul’s madness. The Spirit of the Lord placed him there and He has placed you where you are! Be medicine for the madness around you. Jesus said we would be salt and light.
