Cory continued through the study of David with these main points:
Just as David the King of Jerusalem wanted to bring the ark of the covenant into the center of the Kingdom, King Jesus wants to bring His covenant, His presence into the center of our lives.
Just as the Ark wasn't to be carried on a machine built by man, our relationship with God isn't to be carried by a man made religion machine
Just as the Ark was meant to be born on the shoulders of those ministering to the people it is our calling to carry the New Covenant into the center of our lives and lives of others, living the gospel and proclaiming the gospel.
Just as King David danced and rejoiced as the Ark was brought in, King Jesus rejoices and dances over us as His New Covenant comes into the center of our lives and the lives of those around us.
As King David offered sacrifices before the Ark as it was brought in, King Jesus offered the ultimate sacrifice for us on the cross so that His New Covenant could be brought in.
As King David led a giant worship service in the center of the city as the Ark was brought in, King Jesus draws us to worship and praise Him as His Covenant is established in our lives.
Rom 12:1, "I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service."
As King David sent them all away from this encounter with God with a meal, We never leave a true encounter with God without being nourished for the road ahead by King Jesus
The meal had three parts that are symbolic:
Loaf of Bread - Christ will send us away full, satisfied in Him, He is the bread of Life.
Meat - Christ will send us away strengthened, He is our Strength.
Cake of Raisins - Christ will send us away from meeting with Him with a sweetness, "Taste and see that the Lord is good." (Ps 34:8)
