The Song: David Heard It
Rahab’s great-great-grandson was raised in the insignificant region of Judah called Ephratah, in the even less significant village of Bethlehem. He was the youngest of the eight sons of a man named Jesse and charged with watching his father’s sheep. He was also a singer/worshiper/musician/songwriter. He was an obedient son whose life was dedicated to serving the Lord, the God of Israel. His anonymity expired just as happened with Abraham, Moses, and his great-great grandmother before him. He was launched on a path he could not have foreseen, one that would guarantee no one would ever need to ask his name. As for the song, David knew its invitation more intimately than most.
