    Contributed by Christian Cheong on Mar 20, 2016

    Let go fo the past when God has spoken. Move on by trusting God to guide. Follow God's leading a step at a time.

    1 Sam 16:1-13 WALKING WITH GOD ES 20 Mar 16 1724 Look at these bananas. Appetising? Someone passed them to me on Tuesday. They are local produce (from our church ground). • Looks good? Feels like grabbing one and eat it? Not really. In fact, you don’t feel more

    Contributed by Kenneth Sauer on Jun 21, 2016
    based on 4 ratings

    A sermon about the way God sees us.

    "God Calling: David" 1 Samuel 16:1-13 How many of you know what it feels like to be excluded? How many of you have experienced the agony of being picked last for a sports team? You may have watched as one by one the taller, stronger, more athletic, more "popular" people are chosen as more

  • The Anointed Of God

    Contributed by Dr.w.samuel Legon on Jul 29, 2016

    What God can do if we will only let him work in us.

    The anointed of God In the Holy Scripture two types of anointing. Oil and Spiritual 1st Samuel 16: 13 Then Samuel took the horn of oil, and anointed him in the midst of his brethren: and the Spirit of the LORD came upon David from more

[2] And Samuel said, How can I more

  • What Is Your Calling? (Part 6) Series

    Contributed by Ajai Prakash on Mar 9, 2016
    based on 1 rating

    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.

    Opening Illustration: A certain king needed a faithful servant and had to choose between two candidates for the office. He took both at fixed wages and told them to fill a basket with water from a nearby well, saying that he would come in the evening to inspect their work. After dumping one or two more

  • Lessons From The Father Of A Nation

    Contributed by Kerry Haynes on Jun 16, 2018
    based on 1 rating

    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. We usually look at today’s story from the perspective of David, but why not see it through Samuel’s eyes? Samuel, in essence, is the father more

    Contributed by Stephen E. Trail on Jun 17, 2018

    This is the re-working of a previous message with new headings and outline.

    “The Measure of a Man” 1 Samuel 16:1-13 1 Samuel 16:7 But the LORD said unto Samuel, Look not on his countenance, or on the height of his stature; because I have refused him: for the LORD seeth not as man seeth; for man looketh on the outward appearance, but the LORD looketh on the heart. more

  • When Men Walk With God - Part 2 Series

    Contributed by Dr. Jonathan Vorce on Jun 22, 2018

    Great things happen when Men Walk With God. Last week we talked about Enoch and Noah. This week we will talk about Abraham and King David.

    Micah 6:8 ESV - He has told you, O man, what is good; and what does the LORD require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God? INTRODUCTION • Last week I delivered the first of a two part series called “When Men Walk With God”. Some of the points we covered more

  • In A Way Unexpected

    Contributed by William L. Vincent on Jan 4, 2013
    based on 1 rating

    God will often use things, people and circumstances that do not make sense to the human intellect. God will speak into our improbability and bring forth our destiny.

    1 Sam 16:13 Now the LORD said to Samuel, "How long will you mourn for Saul, seeing I have rejected him from reigning over Israel? Fill your horn with oil, and go; I am sending you to Jesse the Bethlehemite. For I have provided Myself a king among his sons." 2 And Samuel said, "How can I go? If more

  • David & The Holy Spirit

    Contributed by John Gaston on Jun 17, 2015

    The Holy Spirit wants to be active in our lives if we’ll let Him. He wants to make us Christ-like and help us do the work of the Kingdom right now. We’re going to look at the Holy Spirit as revealed during the life of David.

    DAVID & THE HOLY SPIRIT 1 Sam. 16:13 INTRODUCTION A. HUMOR 1. There are a lot of weddings going on. A bride was very unset after her honeymoon so her mother asked her why. 2. "Oh, mother," she began, "The honeymoon was wonderful! But on our way back, Andy started using really horrible language more

  • Judging Character

    Contributed by Kerry Haynes on Mar 25, 2017
    based on 4 ratings

    We put a lot of priority into the way we look, but God sees on the inside. God values character over appearance, and can rightly help us do the same as we trust him.

    1 Samuel 16:6-13 Judging Character In our western society, we truly value outward appearances. People in America spend thousands and thousands of dollars on face lifts, behind lifts, and everything in between. Don Knotts, the actor who played Barney Fife on the Andy Griffith Show, once said, “What more

  • Give Us A King Series

    Contributed by Jeremiah Menyongai on Sep 4, 2016

    When it comes to the principle of choices, men are always impressed by what they see, but not God. He looks at the heart. The people of Israel selected a king based on the externals - but God was looking at the heart when he selected David.

    Series: David - A Man After God’s Own Heart (An Intro: Give Us A King – The People’s Choice V/S God’s Choice) 1. 1 Samuel 16:1-14 16 The Lord said to Samuel, “How long will you mourn for Saul, since I have rejected him as king over Israel? Fill your horn with oil and more

  • Something's Rotten In Jesse's House (Part 1) Series

    Contributed by Jeremiah Menyongai on Sep 4, 2016
    based on 1 rating

    David possesses all these giftings, yet he is disregarded in his own family. His father and brothers do not value him much, but God does. Our worth is not determined by what others think of us but what God thinks of us.

    Series: David - A Man After God’s Own Heart: Part 2: Something’s Rotten In Jesse’s Family 1 SAMUEL 16:1 The Lord said to Samuel, “How long will you mourn for Saul, since I have rejected him as king over Israel? Fill your horn with oil and be on your way; I am sending you to more

  • Something Is Rotten In Jesse's House (Part 2) Series

    Contributed by Jeremiah Menyongai on Sep 4, 2016

    Only God sees the genuine qualities on the inside of each of us. When looking for a partner whether in business or relationships, desire God's discernment. Never choose based on sight. In spite of David's hidden qualities, he is rejected in his own house.

    Series: David - A Man After God¡¦s Own Heart: Part 3: Something¡¦s Rotten In Jesse¡¦s Family (2) 1 SAMUEL 16:1 1 And the Lord said unto Samuel, How long wilt thou mourn for Saul, seeing I have rejected him from reigning over Israel? fill thine horn with oil, and go, I will send thee to Jesse the more

  • New Testament Anointing

    Contributed by Bharat Raaya on Oct 12, 2015

    Saul and David depicts two testaments. Saul stands for Old Testament and David for New Testament. Their anointing differed and so was their race to the final destination.

    New Testament anointing 1Samuel 10:1,16:1-13 Prophet Samuel had the privilege of anointing the first two kings of Israel. In 1 Sam.10:1, we see that Samuel took a flask of oil to anoint Saul. But in 1 Sam 16:13 he took a horn of oil to anoint David. Does the FLASK and the HORN ring a bell in more
