    based on 1 rating

    David's selection as king in 1 Samuel 16:1-13 shows us how God selected a king for his people.

    Scripture Today we begin a sermon series on “The Life of David.” John Butler writes, “David was a man of many hats. He was a king, a warrior and a shepherd as most realize; but he also wore other hats….He was a son…a shepherd…a singer…a servant…a soldier…a sufferer…a seer…a supplicant…a scholar…a more

  • Fill Your Horn With Oil & Go!

    Contributed by John Gaston on Oct 3, 2018

    The oil is often the missing ingredient in spiritual ministry. We can’t be on the cutting edge of the Spirit without filling our horns with oil. The oil is symbolic of the anointing, unction, power, presence of the Spirit.

    FILL YOUR HORN WITH OIL & GO! 1 Sam. 16:1 INTRODUCTION A. HUMOR 1. Mr. and Mrs. Brown had two sons. One was named Mind Your Own Business & the other was named Trouble. 2. One day the two boys decided to play hide and seek. Trouble hid while Mind Your Own Business counted to one hundred. more

    Contributed by Dr. Jonathan L Vorce on Jun 23, 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 more

  • Lessons From The Father Of A Nation

    Contributed by Kerry Haynes on Jun 17, 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 more

    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. After all, they were not rejecting Samuel: they were rejecting the LORD (1 Samuel 8:4-7). This is the same more

  • Truthbombs - Pt. 2 - It's Moving Day! Series

    Contributed by Steve Ely on Oct 17, 2016
    based on 2 ratings

    Just because we don't like the truth, can't handle the truth or it doesn't line up with our experience/feelings doesn't make it any less truth. Can you handle truth bombs?

    Truth Bombs Pt. 2 - It's Moving Day I. Introduction Truth is talked about a lot. It has been said that truth is different for everyone. I would beg to differ. Truth is truth because it is truth across the board. That is what makes it truth. There has to be a standard of truth by which what we more

    How God uses the least of people for His purposes

    TITLE: From Nobody to Nobility TEXT: 1 Samuel 16:1-13 INTRO: The leader of a nation has an awesome responsibility. He can unite or divide the people. He can build up or tear down the nation. He can be cruel or compassionate. In other nations the people have no choice who their leader will be, more

  • Give Us A King Series

    Contributed by Jeremiah Menyongai on Sep 5, 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 5, 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 more

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

    Contributed by Jeremiah Menyongai on Sep 5, 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

  • God Can Make A Nobody Into A Somebody Series

    Contributed by Jeremiah Menyongai on Sep 5, 2016

    For a long time, many skeptics and atheists have stated that David is a mythical character invented by the Jews. But recent archaeological discoveries have proven otherwise. My trip to Israel in January 2016 brought new revelations. David is God's Man.

    Series: David - A Man After God’s Own Heart: Part 2: God Can Make A Nobody Into A Somebody 1. 1 Samuel 16:1-14 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
