“…for the Lord has sought out a man after His own heart…”
— I Samuel 13:14
“…God said, ‘I have found David son of Jesse, a man after my own heart. He will do everything I want him to do.’”
— Acts 13:22

Throughout Scripture, King David is described as a man after God’s own heart. Chasing after God was David’s life pursuit. He sought after the heart of God with a passion most can’t even come close to matching. He chased God’s heart out onto a battlefield where he met the giant Goliath. He chased God’s heart into Jerusalem, where he found the throne God designed specifically for him. He chased God’s heart in worship, leaving behind a book of Psalms that inspires people even to this day. In (almost) everything he did, King David pursued the King of the Universe. 

So, what does that mean for us? Sure, we may not be kings, but our pursuit isn’t all that different from David’s. We want to know God. We want to chase God’s heart. What does that look like in our day? How can we be sure that we are pursuing and chasing God’s heart with all of our heart? In our eight-week sermon series, “Pursuing God,” we’ll see what David has to teach us about our own pursuits. As we look through David’s life, we see an honest picture of what it really means to pursue God in the messiness of life. In our trials and triumphs, in our sorrows and our celebrations, we can chase after God just like King David did. The best part is that when we pursue God in that way, we find out He’s the One who’s been pursuing us all along!
