King David wants to build God a house, but instead God promises to make him a house. Like David, we’re often tempted to do stuff for God so that God will like us. But we can’t bargain with God. We don’t build God a house, God makes us into a house – the holy temple of the Lord.

Listen to the sermon preached by the Revd Bryce Amner on Sunday 22 July 2018.
