1Samuel 17:12 “Now David was the son of that Ephrathite of Bethlehemjudah, whose name was Jesse; and he had eight sons: and the man went among men for an old man in the days of Saul.”

1Samuel 17:13 “And the three eldest sons of Jesse went and followed Saul to the battle…”

…From yesterday…

How can a wise son like Solomon and a foolish son like Absalom come from the same father? The problem is not with the father, the problem is with the sons. That’s why in the same class where somebody is getting an “A” another is getting a “D” under the same tutor.

Friend, what are you learning from God? What side of God do you know? How powerful do you think God is? Do you know God as a Champion? Are you aware of the warrior nature of God?

David appeared on the battle field knowing full well he is the son of a champion! He was not intimidated by Goliath, a champion without covenant. He knew Goliath was no match for him. He understood the class difference!

David was the son of a champion and he knew it! I’m sure when he introduced himself like that his brothers mocked him but he knew the power and force in that name. Do you know the power in the name of Jesus, the Champion of Israel?

David was not just called a champion, he was called a great and mighty champion from “…Bethlehemjudah”. Those are two powerful words combined in the introduction as well.

The Hebrew word Bethlehem means “house of bread” while Judah means “praise”. Bread talks about the word and the person of Jesus himself.

John 6:48 “I am that bread of life.”

In order words, BethlehemJudah means, someone who praises God based on the revelation of the word! David was no ordinary person. When you read the Psalms especially Psalms 119, you’ll understand his disposition towards the word. He also praised God every day of his life.

To be continued…
