We are into our third week in “Jacob's 11”, the traits the Wetterling Foundation recommends people live by to honor Jacob. I will not be preaching for the next two weeks, next week Judy preaches than Sandawna Ashley will be our guest preacher on the 29th. We'll return to the series in August. Today's trait is the call to be joyful. And we are looking at the Old Testament lesson for our scriptural reference.
A little background about the task King David took on—bringing the Ark of the Covenant to Jerusalem. How many of you remember the Indiana Jones movies? Do you remember their quest for this same Ark in Raiders of the Lost Ark? And when they found it? Indy's archrival found the Ark, opened the lid and unleashed the power of the Ark, which quite literally melted all those who looked upon the glory of the Lord. This is the Ark in today's account.
