1 Samuel 18-20
In this sermon, we discover the two responses to God’s King. Saul represents those who reject God’s king, and we see several characteristics associated with this path: jealousy, anger, fear, and irrationality. Jonathan is an often overlooked Bible character who is a wonderful example of what it looks like to follow God’s king. The marks of a faithful follower are sacrifice, courage, allegiance, and a deep, lasting commitment. We see these same two responses to God’s King today.

    1 Samuel 17
    We look at one of the most familiar and loved stories of the Bible, David verses Goliath. Sometimes our familiarity with a story can prevent us from hearing the real meaning of the story. We discover this chapter has the same theme as 1 Samuel 16: “the Lord sees not as man sees.” We are reminded that we must rethink how we view our situation, others, ourselves, and power.

    In this sermon we focus on 1 Samuel 15, and we learn the common characteristics and patterns of rebellion, or sin, against the king.  First, rebellion is anything other than complete and immediate obedience.  Second, rebellion is driven by greed.  Third, rebellion is irrational and leads to more rebellion.  Finally, we look at Hebrews 10 and discover how our rebellion can be overcome.
