1st Samuel – From Devastation to Faith

1st Samuel – The Christian and the Double Life

In this message, we cover the whole of 1 Samuel 29. Here, we examine how David gets himself extracted from the dilemma he’s in with Achish and the Philistines. We draw out several lessons, but one in particular is all about living a double life. If you enjoy having a head start on notes, here are the four major sermon outline points:…

1st Samuel – Night

Our message is from 1 Samuel 28:3-25. It is entitled “Night” because we go with Saul into the darkness of his last, miserable night on earth. While we left David last week in the midst of a dilemma, Saul finds himself in a much more grave position. Saul’s life has served as a very dire warning to all of us, yet the…

1st Samuel – Fools and Princes, Part 1

Our message comes from the first half of 1 Samuel 25:1-17. Here we learn of Samuel’s death, and then launch into the story of David, Nabal, and Abigail. The foolish Nabal is a powerful contrast to David, but David’s response to Nabal’s foul behavior is way out of character and out of line. Our sermon concludes with four practical applications that will…

1st Samuel – A Restraining Conscience

Our sermon is entitled “A Restraining Conscience.” Here we look at David’s interactions with Saul in 1 Samuel 24. We will examine the idea of the conscience, its role, and how it functions in David as well as Saul. We also look at the controversial idea of honoring the office of the magistrate, even when there is a tyrant occupying that office.…

1st Samuel – Faithful Friends

In this message we look at 1 Samuel 23, 15-29. The prime meat of our study will be the first paragraph, in which we meet David’s good friend once Jonathan again. The sermon is divided into five sections: First, we gain some context by understanding David’s circumstances and how we can relate to him where he is. Second, we look again at David’s friend.…
