Sermons on 1 Samuel
Peter has encouraged the new believers in Asia Minor by unpacking the glorious way in which they were saved… they had been brought into the covenant family of God. But there is a certain way in which the covenant family of God is supposed to live… they are supposed to be holy! Pastor Joe helps us understand what it means to be holy.

Saul has now decided in his heart to kill David. Jonathan cannot believe his father would go back on his promise not to harm him. David pleads with Jonathan to find out his father’s true intentions. When they are uncovered, Jonathan is left having to make the biggest decision of his life. Pastor Joe will help us see how Jonathan’s decision informs the biggest decision any of us will ever make.
David is now Saul’s son-in-law, but that does not make him immune from the maddening paranoia of the king. Saul begins to relentlessly pursue David, longing to take him out. Pastor Ben helps us see how God protects His anointed, and a truth that empowers us to stand in this world.
David has announced himself on the national stage and everyone is coming to terms with his amazing success. In the way of David’s victory we will see how different people respond to the future anointed King in order to see how we might be able to have genuine community, free from the jealousy and self-seeking problems of our world.
