Great spirit of fellowship at the 09 Men's Getaway last weekend. I was there Friday and most of the day on Saturday and had an opportunity to open God's Word and what it means to be a man after God's own heart. P. Ken took over and continued the theme on Saturday night and Sunday morning.
I suggested that David was a man after God's own heart because . . .
- He had a heart that believed God
(we see it in his faceoff with Goliath, in his relationship with Saul and later with Absolom
- He had a heart that beat after the things of God
(Gods name, God's fame, God's ark, God's temple, God's praise)
- He had a heart that broke before God.
(we see it throughout the Psalms and especially in Psalm 51 after confronted in his sin)
I enjoyed seeing some less involved guys join us and having a great time and, as last year, got in some great MTB riding. If you missed it, you missed out. Its so hard to get away, but so worth it.
Here's a great pic of a big group ride . . .
