1 Chronicles

God chose Israel, and not even their sin would make Him change his mind.

This book is a re-telling of the events of Samuel.  However the emphasis is on David's reign, and the impact it will have on the future of God's chosen people.  "I will settle him in mine house and in my kingdom for ever, and his throne shall be established for evermore." (1 Chronicles 17:14)

God promises David an eternal line; a line that will one day lead to Jesus Christ, and our salvation.  Even though the people will fall away from God, he will not fall away from them.  Even though he will allow their nation to be destroyed, he will preserve them and their line.

Even though they deserve death, he will give them instead life.

The throne of David
established for evermore.
Grace in spite of sin.

Like Israel, we also lose our way sometimes.  
Do we remember that God treats us with Grace?
Do we remember to thank him, not just with words, but with our lifestyle.
