In our Old Testament lesson this Sunday, King David asks the prophet Nathan if he should build God a house of cedar (a temple). Nathan replies, “Thus says the Lord, You shall not build me a house, but I will build you a house.”
The “house” that God will build for David is the house of his descendants, who will sit on David’s throne forever. Jesus, the Son of David, now sits on David’s throne.
