THE HOME

INTRO: THE KING AFTER GOD’S OWN HEART.

1: DAVID SON OF JESSE

A) ANNOINTED KING AS A SMALL RUDDY BOY

B) A SHEPHERD OF HIS FATHER’S FLOCK

C) THE YOUNGEST OF HIS BROTHERS

D) OUT OF ALL THE SONS OF JESSE DAVID WAS THE LAST ONE SAMUEL THOUGHT GOD COULD USE.

POINT: THE MAN AFTER GOD’S OWN HEART, THE MAN WHO WAS A POET A SONGWRITER A LOVER OF GOD A MAN WHO LIVED IN EXTRADITION FROM KING SAUL. THE GREAT MIGHTY WARRIOR THE MAN WHO SLEPT WITH BATHSHEBA, THE SAME MAN WHO HAD A SON RISE UP AGAINST HIM. 2 SAMUEL 23 DAVID LISTS HIS MIGHTY MEN A SPEAKS IN A WAY THAT IS SOUNDING OF A PROPHET. 5 VERSES IN THE MIDDLE TELL A STORY OF DEVOTION, COURAGE AND PLAIN OUT OLD FASHION GUTS.

2: V 13

A) THREE OF THE THIRTY CHIEF

B) THESE WERE DAVID’S ROYAL BODYGUARDS OR MEN EQUIVALENT TO TODAYS SPECIAL FORCES SOLIDERS

C) THEY WENT TO SEE THEIR KING AT ADULLAM ( A CAVE )

D) IT WAS JUST OUTSIDE OF DAVID’S HOMETOWN OF BETHELHEM

POINT: ACCORDING TO HISTORY THERE WAS A FAMINE AND DROUGHT IN THE LAND AT THE TIME OF THIS ENCOUNTER. THE KING IS CAMPED OUTSIDE OF BETHELHEM AND THE PHILLISTINES HAVE OVERTAKEN BETHELHEM AND HAVE SET UP CAMP IN THE TOWN.

BODY: THREE MEN

1: NO NAMES MENTIONED

A) JUST THREE OF THE THIRTY

B) THEY WEREN’T ASKED

C) NO ONE MADE THEM GO

D) THEY JUST WENT

POINT: JESUS CHRIST WANTS TO BE IN OUR LIVES EVERY ASPECT OF OUR LIVES. OUR JOBS OUR HOMES OUR FAMILIES. HE DOESN’T ASK FOR VOLUNTEERS OR ORDER US TO DO SO. WE HAVE TO WANT TO.

2: SERVICE FOR A KING

A) THESE MEN LOVED KING DAVID

B) THAT IS WHY THEY DID WHAT THEY DID

C) THEY BROKE THROUGH THE LINE AND TOOK A GLASS OF WATER FOR THEIR KING

POINT: GOD GIVES US OPPORTUNITIES TO CLAIM HIS PROMISES TO DO SOMETHING FOR HIM DO SOMETHING FOR SOMEONE ELSE. WHAT SEVICE DO WE DO FOR THE KING WE CLAIM TO LOVE AND SERVE.

3: THINK OF IT LIKE THIS

A) YOUR HOME

B) YOUR SPOUSE

C) YOUR CHILDREN

D) YOUR LOVED ONES

E) HOW DEVOTED ARE YOU TO SEEING TO THEIR ETERNAL DESTINATION

F) THEIR SPIRITUAL NEEDS

G) THEIR RELATIONSHIPS WITH JESUS CHRIST

POINT: SOME THINGS ARE WORTH GOING TO GREAT RISK AND GREAT COSTS TO PROTECT OR TO ENSURE. WE FACE AN ENEMY WHO WALKS ABOUT AS A ROARING LION THE PRINCE OF THE POWER OF THE AIR. OUR KING CALLS FOR US HOW DO WE RESPOND?

CLOSING: JUST A DRINK OF WATER

1: LAZARUS AND THE RICH MAN

A) DIP YOUR FINGER IN THE WATER AND JUST LET THAT SMALL DROP COOL MY TONGUE

B) THE PETITION OF THE RICH MAN

C) WHAT ABOUT YOURSELF AND YOUR LOVED ONES

D) YOU’D GO TO HELL AND BACK FOR THEM IF YOU COULD

E) BUT YOU CAN’T

F) DO YOU HAVE ENOUGH DEVOTION TO JESUS CHRIST IN YOUR LIFE TO HELP THEM?

POINT: NO OF US ARE MORE THAN LIKELY SPECIAL ELITE WARRIORS. BUT WE HAVE A SOURCE A PROVIDER A PROTECTOR A LORD AND SAVIOR WHO TELLS US TO CALL ON HIM TO BELIEVE IN HIM TO TRUST IN HIM. HE SAYS WE CAN DO ALL THINGS THROUGH HIM BECAUSE HE STRENGTHENS US, AMEN.

CONCLUSION: THEY HAD TO TAKE THE WATER, THE WATER WE HAVE AVAILABLE IS FREELY GIVEN TO US. OUR BATTLES ARE FOR OUR HOMES OUR FAMILIES OUR CHILDREN AND OUR WAY OF LIFE. THE CHURCH IS IN DESPERATE NEED OF SOME MIGHTY MEN WILLING TO STICK THEIR NECKS OUT AND BE DEVOTED CHRIST IN THEIR DAILY LIVES.
