What we all need: to die and be born again

Scripture: II Samuel 12
Series: Deep impact with David
Speaker: Hans-Jan Roozenbrand

From a history of sin, grief and shame, two children are born. The first son dies, nameless. The second son lives on and is called “loved-by-God.” From the same history, David is born again. The abuser dies. A righteous, caring king rises. The story from 2 Samuel 12 will be our introduction to the Christmas story this Sunday. Somewhere in a stable a child was born who died because of our sins, but also has the power to lead us into a renewed life. Isn’t that what we all need?
