June 2, 2019 – Pastor Barry Clair concludes the series “Friending God” with the message “Yearning For Closeness”
Over the last several weeks, we’ve looked at several people in Scripture who had an authentic friend-style relationship with God. In week 1 we looked at Abraham, the only individual in the Bible that God called His friend. In week 2 we took a look at Jesus who called all of His
disciples His friends. Then in weeks 3 & 4, we examined how earthly relationships can function like spiritual friendships with God, and we took our text from the words of Solomon who says more in the Bible about friendship than any other book in the Bible. And last week, we looked at Moses, who the Scripture says had a face-to-face relationship with God.
Today, we are going to look at one more person who had a very, very artistic, poetic, visceral and experiential friendship with God. His name is David.
