Sermons on 2 Samuel

2nd Samuel – The Plan that Counts

Our sermon is entitled The Plan that Counts and is taken from 2 Samuel 17. Here we find a chapter of tense political maneuvering and a bit of a spy story as Hushai and Ahithophel each give their counsel to the usurper, Absalom. We will learn some things about the certainty of God’s plans, and while its a very simple lesson we…

2nd Samuel – Friends and Traitors

Our sermon is entitled Friends and Traitors and comes from 2 Samuel 16:15-23. We will see Hushai again, doing what David sent him to do, and then we’ll witness a gross and wicked act by Ahithophel against God and David. Ahithophel is the Judas of the Old Testament. Our themes will center on betrayal and the one who does not betray. We…

2nd Samuel – A Couple of Encounters on the Way

Our message comes from 2 Samuel 16:1-14. Here we find David still fleeing from Jerusalem ahead of his usurping Son, Absalom. When we last were with David, he met some friends along the way. This time, he will meet some enemies. It is largely a narrative that moves the story along and provides groundwork for David’s thoughts and actions later on in…

There is much here that causes us to anticipate the suffering of our Lord Jesus. And because betrayal is one of the most difficult of offenses to…

2nd Samuel – Amnon: A Monster in David’s House

Our message is entitled Amnon: A Monster in David’s House. We have come to 2 Samuel 13:1-22 in our trek through the book of Samuel. Amnon and Tamar are the focus of a tragic story of domestic violence and incest, but the frightful heart motives found in Amnon are surprisingly common even among people professing Jesus as their Lord. Let us come soberly to the…

2nd Samuel – Grace to Sinners

Our sermon is entitled “Grace to Sinners” and takes us to 2 Samuel 12:26-31 andPsalm 51. Here we wrap up the season of the Ammonite wars, where David proved to be the chief of sinners and the recipient of restorative grace. We will speak about the end of the tale, look at the whole of Psalm 51, and then launch to the…
