Day Five

David and Bathsheba

Before getting started, make sure you've watched Captain Mike's introduction video.

2 Samuel 12:1-14
Was David able to keep what he done a secret? Why or why not? Who always knows what we have done?



David faced consequences for his sin. All sin has harmful consequences. Read Romans 5:12. Who has sinned? What happens to everyone that sins?



Have you ever realized that you are a sinner? If so, when did you first realize this? Did you know that your sin offends God, and that death (eternal separation from God) is the consequence for your sin?



Like all men, David sinned, and it is one of his descendants who came along to pay the penalty for that sin.

Read 2 Samuel 7:11-12. What promise did God make to David?



Read Matthew 21:9-10. Who is this descendant of David?



Read Matthew 16:15-16 . Jesus is the Son of David, but he is also the Son of...? Write down your answer.



Jesus, being the Son of David, was fully human, but coming from heaven He was also fully God.
As promised, Jesus will sit on the throne to reign over all of the Earth forever. The first time he came to Earth though, he died. Why did Jesus die? Check out 1 Peter 3:18 for the answer. Is he still dead?



Listen carefully as Ranger Cole is about to share with you how to take the important step of beginning a relationship with Jesus Christ. We hope you will pray to make Jesus the Lord of your life and ask Him to forgive you of your sin if you never have before. If you have questions about this at the end of the video please talk to your parents or someone older who you know is a Christian.
