Lamenting Victory

December 5, 2021 Speaker: Fred Greco Series: 2 Samuel

Topic: AM Service Passage: 2 Samuel 18:19–19:8

As we have seen repeatedly in 2 Samuel, sin brings sad consequences. David has been through a great deal of sorrow and pain due to his sin against the Lord, Uriah, and Bathsheba. But the greatest grief is yet to come – as David is informed of the death of his son, Absalom. The scene as David learns of Absalom’s death reminds us of two great truths about sin: first, that sin brings misery and destruction in its wake; and second, that the grace of God can bring hope and restoration. David needed to be reminded by his rough general that the Lord had delivered the kingdom from the rebels and to stop “Lamenting Victory” (2 Samuel 18:19-19:8).
