Mephibosheth, crippled from a young age, bowed at the feet of King David. He was grateful to the king for calling him out, bringing him to his house, sitting him at his table and restoring unto him the land of his grandfather, King Saul.

What a beautiful picture this is of our relationship with Jesus. Previously we had wandered around crippled by sin until the Lord, our King, sought us out. He called us to be children of His. To come into His fold and to eat from His table. As we humbly and gratefully accepted the invitation we became as royalty; joint heirs with Jesus.

King David sought Mephibosheth to give him a new, better way of life. Jesus did the same for you.

II Samuel 9:1-8
