Loyalty Tested, pt. 1 (2 Samuel 15:13-23)

Phillip Kayser, PhD, October 20, 2013
Part of the Life of David series, preached at a Sermon service

The Biblical concept of loyalty is summed up in the Hebrew words hemeth and chesed. Loyalty must be defined by the covenant and limited by the covenant or it can easily become an idolatrous loyalty. And since it is a covenant grace, it is not something that humans can produce in their own strength. It is supernatural. This sermon begins to look at several tests of the character of our loyalty. It is a radical call to step out of the ordinary and into the realm of the supernatural in all of our covenant relationships.
