David’s Dominion – 1 Samuel 17:45-47 – Dominion: David never slayed a giant on his own. We are a people called to live in Dominion. There is a distinct difference between Dominion and control. It is God’s desire to establish you beyond the margins of your ability to control.
The Anointed Servant – 1 Samuel 16:14-23 – Now the Spirit of the Lord had departed from Saul, and an evil spirit from the Lord tormented him. Cultivating God’s Spirit in your life: Like oil and water, God’s Spirit and an evil spirit cannot occupy the same space. The Spirit of God drives away evil. Whatever spirit you choose to be in agreement with will take dominion over your life.
Samuel Anoints David: Time to Move On 1 Samuel 16:1-13
God has a plan for us, but we often hold on to the past. Join Pastor Adam speak about David’s own struggles to step into God’s vision for his kingly reign, and learn about stepping past our specters of mourning and the sacrifices that are often required.
God’s timing can be one of the biggest giants that we face. Many of us find it hard to wait without taking control of our lives rather than being patient for God to act. In this message, we look at Saul’s attempt to please and appease God by an act that turns out to be disobedient and in the end ultimately rips the kingdom from Saul’s hand. How are you doing with God’s timing?
God has a funny habit of giving us what we want. This is especially true when what we want goes against what is best for us. Israel wanted a king rather then walking the more liberating faith journey of only serving God. They paid a price for this in the end. In this sermon I talk about being all you are called to be and the temptation to take the easy way out.
Many in society are pushing not only to blur the identity of fatherhood, but to eradicate the need of it from the family structure. God has a special role for the father. Join Pastor Adam as we explore what and how discipline is a key component of the fatherly relationship structure that God envisions for our lives.
