Following God is Not an Easy Road

Tagged With: / The Life of David

As we open to I Corinthians 10:11-13, it is our reminder as we study the Life of David: following God is hard, it is not EASY!

For many years songwriter John W. Peterson (1921-2006) lived in Grand Rapids, Michigan. One song he wrote among the thousand that bear his name is titled: “It’s Not an Easy Road”. David, whose life we are studying, would have heartily agreed with these words:

For many are the thorns on the way

It’s not an easy road, but the Savior is with us

His presence gives us joy every day.
