Mephibosheth’s life isn’t a heroic one on the surface. He was a son of Saul, and when David ascended the throne, Mephibosheth’s relationship with the new king was potentially dangerous. His story reflects a broader eternal reality. The king that Mephibosheth once ran from, he comes to love and serve. Ultimately, the story points to a future King of Kings, Jesus, who will reign forever with great mercy and compassion.


This sermon includes a dramatic first-person narrative of the story from Mephibosheth’s point of view.
