David was a great king as well as an outstanding servant of the Lord, who fought God’s battles and gained the material for the building of God’s dwelling place; God Himself says that he was “a man after My own heart” (Acts 13:22). Yet even so, he also had serious failures, for which he suffered very much, and often had difficulty discerning the Lord’s desire.

Two crucial elements for the constitution of the New Testament ministry are the process of the growth of the divine life and conformation to the person of Christ. The book of First Peter shows us that a person who was so much in himself at the start of his Christian life became one who was stable, mature, virtuous, full of life, one with God, and living a life of God mingled with man.
