Glorify God, Live Together, Make Disciples

Mephibosheth – An Illustration of God’s Redemptive Grace

2 Samuel 9:1-13
Every Believer should be amazed by undeserved mercy!

I. Mephibosheth Remembered on the Basis of an Old Covenant 1:1

II. “Effectual calling” Mephibosheth was rescued from his desperate plight producing humility and repentance 1:5

III. Extraordinary Care as an Adopted Son 1:3; 7; 9-13

IV. Four final Observations:

  1. Privileges of grace ought not to be taken lightly: Mephibosheth feasted continually 13
  2. Infirmities may well remain all of our living days; He is still lame on his feet 13
  3. Gratitude is the natural response to the grace of God; not all share the same destiny as Mephibosheth: Epilogue 2 Sam 21:1-9
  4. There is a coming day when we will be at the eternal banquet of the King of kings and Lord of lords!
