When I was in college the movie Easy Rider came out. The theme song of the movie was Born to be Wild by the rock group Steppenwolf. The first line of the song is “Get your motor running, head out on the highway, looking for adventure in whatever comes my way!” I was inspired by that song to save up my money and buy a motorcycle so I too could go out and find adventure.
I believe all of us have an innate desire for adventure. David was an adventurer on a mission to serve His Lord. In our text today, we will see him, even at an old age, going out and battling giants. We too, were born to fight giants. If a song and a movie can stir up a desire to risk life and limb riding a motorcycle, how much more should the Gospel stir up in us a passion to risk all and give all for the adventure Jesus Christ has planned for our lives?
