     | 5,649 views

    From the story of Samuel anointing David as future king, we learn to obey God (which impacts others), to never stop learning, and to cultivate character. (Used as Father's Day sermon.)

    1 Samuel 15:34 - 1 Samuel 16:13 Lessons from the Father of a Nation This Father’s Day I thought it would be interesting to learn from the Father of a nation.

    based on 1 rating
     | 4,800 views

    Has God really called you? Then where is that separation? Where is your heart? What is it captivated by? Is the presence of the Holy Spirit evident in your life? This is not something you can determine or speak for yourself. This the church will testify.
