    what made David who he was, was not developed in the fanfare of the palace, but in the isolation of a pasture... long before he played for Saul, he played for God. Before defeating the giant, he practiced on trees, targets, bears and lions.

    Palace or the Pasture 1 Samuel 16:11 KJV [11] And Samuel said unto Jesse, Are here all thy children? And he said, There remaineth yet the youngest, and, behold, he keepeth the sheep.

    Why would Paul list such a long boooring list of people at the end of such a powerful New Testament book? Why waste the ink? The answer to that question is both intriguing and exciting to those of who belong to Jesus.

    I opened the sermon by asking the congregation to join with me in singing: “I’m So Glad I’m A Part Of The Family of God I’ve been washed in the fountain, cleansed by His blood Joint heirs with Jesus as we travel this sod For I’m part of the family, the family of God.” If you’re a Christian ...read more

    God doesn’t judge from ouward appearance... but too often we do. What can we do to avoid that tendency?

    OPEN: How many of you have ever watched “American Idol”? (Nearly ½ the congregation raised their hands). Ok, how many of you have ever seen “Britain’s Got Talent.”?

    based on 9 ratings
     | 2,799 views

    part 2 of series Facing Your Giants, the credit for the idea comes from Max Lucado’s book by the same title. This deals with how God uses those whom we see as unusable. David was the runt of the litter, God used him for great things.

    Rejection: 1972 was a bittersweet year for me. I graduated from High School (YAY), I had a good part in the school musical (YAY).
