    The Lord's criteria for service.

    ANOINTING A MAN AFTER GOD’S OWN HEART 1 Samuel 16:1-13 Israel had demanded a king, just so that they could be like the other nations. Samuel had protested, but the LORD allowed it.

  • Palace Or The Pasture

    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. And Samuel said unto Jesse, Send and fetch him: for we will not sit down till he come hither. Gene Edwards, ...read more

    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.”? (A few hand went up) That’s understandable since “Britain’s Got Talent” is aired in Britain. It’s the English cousin of our ...read more

    Let’s notice in this passage as we think about How God Chooses his Servant-Leader: I. GOD’S CHOICES ARE SOVEREIGN II. GOD’S CHOICES ARE SURPRISING III. GOD’S CHOICES ARE SPECIFIC

    HOW GOD CHOOSES A SERVANT-LEADER 1 Samuel 16:1-13 This chapter opens with God reminding Samuel of the fact that He has rejected Saul as king of Israel.

    Too often, young people are told that they aren’t good enough, experienced enough, or educated enough. Meanwhile, talent and gifts are going unused.

    Tonight, I want to start right off by jumping into the Word and looking at a passage about a young boy being used by God in a big way. Let’s open our Bibles to 1 Samuel 16:1-13. ***Have a youth read 1 Samuel 16:1-13*** As we pick up our text, a man named Saul has been King of Israel. In fact, ...read more

    Sometimes when it comes to the will of God and the choices God makes for us, we become impatient and irritated at God. Sometimes when it comes to the will of God and the choices God makes for us, we doubt and lose our way. Trust in Him.
