This book is excellent for those who desire to serve God more, especially in the church. May the Lord gain many who are not just doing things for Him, but who have set their hearts to be after God and what is on His heart. May these ones recognize the process God must still bring them through to gain them more thoroughly and to serve their generation in a way that pleases Him.
Did you know? Even in the life of King David, we can see pictures of our experience of the church!
Even after gaining the kingdom, David still had much to learn in how to follow the word of the Lord.
It took a long process for David to come into his eventual pace. He was not simply anointed, then *boom* he was gained for God Himself; no, it took a process that stretched over years before he was ready for the kingship.
The first three chapters of this book look at the environment David will eventually be brought into. In this environment we begin to see how God prepares to turn the age.
