Accelerate: Episode 1. The Great Commission. Matthew 28:16-20

The last words of Jesus on earth instruct us was to, “go and make disciples.” Pastor Adam begins a new sermon series to accelerate our faith beyond the starting blocks.

The Crown: Episode 7. Rest On All Sides. 2 Samuel 7:8-11.

Is your life all about getting “Likes?” One of the curses of our age is convincing people that they must be great to have value. David never pursued greatness, greatness pursued David. He allowed his life to be crafted by God. Let God take you to the place you were meant to be. You might just find peace and rest there, instead of chasing Likes.

Sovereignty Over Freedom

1. A religious entity cannot maintain integrity as long as it is in a civil contract with a secular governmental institution.
2. The original religious migrants to this continent were not looking to create a Christian nation, but rather a sovereign independent theocracy void of civic contract.
3. In agreeing to function within this nation’s quasi Christian civic founding, religious leaders became unequally yoked and hence became part of the civic society and thus regulated to that and by that agreement, hoping to maintain certain freedoms.
4. Civil rights belong to the civic body, thus one’s perceived civic rights can never be violated by a sovereign state which refuses to be part of that civic system.

The Crown: Episode 6. Faith & Victory. 2 Samuel 5:17-25

The Crown: Episode 4. The Grace of Wrath. 2 Samuel 4:5-12

We all love it when the bully gets what’s coming to them. But do we allow God the same luxury? In today’s world, any concept of God’s wrath upsets our modern sentiments. God used David to right injustice. God’s character demands that every offense be atoned for…as a path to peace.

The Crown: Episode 3. Hold On Loosely. 2 Samuel 3:1 and 6-11 Episode 3

The Crown: Episode 2. Kings Without A Crown. 2 Samuel 2:1-7. Episode 2

What is your personal purpose? What is the meaning of life? Many people exchange knowing God for finding their purpose. David never chased the Crown. But he did seek relationship with God. This lesson teaches us not to chase destiny, but to seek the right thing in God’s will.
