David & Absalom

David fathered dozens of children. Unfortunately, he missed the mark on disciplining many of them. The consequences of David’s parenting failures resulted in his son Absalom killing his brother and attempting to steal the kingdom from his father. David flees Jerusalem and must deal with how his failures impact his family and the entire kingdom of Israel. Part of the role of a parent is to discipline children, teaching them right from wrong and leading them to grow in faith.…

David, Bathsheba, & Nathan

David’s eyes wander, a good man dies, and now there are consequences for David pursuing a relationship with Bathsheba. The Lord is displeased with David, who seems to have no knowledge of his sin. In His mercy, God sends Nathan, who guides David to take an honest look at what he’s done and repent of his sin. The Bible is honest; we see the good, the bad, and the ugly in God’s people. Through these stories, God teaches us to…

David & God

David is ready to move the Ark of the Covenant to Jerusalem, his city. But he wants to do things his way, and the consequences are severe. David becomes angry with God and refuses to move the Ark any further, afraid that more might die in trying. Eventually, David comes to understand he had nothing to fear if he follows God’s directions. Through this situation, David learns to both revere God in holy fear and worship the Lord in exuberate…

David & Saul

Saul hunts David with intent to kill. And yet, David is the one who can take out Saul. When David finds himself in a position of power and authority over Saul, who continually seeks to destroy him, David chooses to be meek and humble. David yields to God’s will instead of his own desire for safety and revenge. When you find yourself in a position of power and authority over someone who has wronged you, your decisions will reveal what…

David & Jonathan

Saul sees David as a major threat and wants to get rid of him. Despite this, Saul’s son Jonathan follows God’s will by aligning himself with David. This was not an easy decision, as going against the king was going to cost him. But to do the opposite – go against God’s will – would cost him even more. Jonathan rejoices in David’s position, even though it means he loses everything. We must be careful not to be blind with…

David & Goliath

The story of David and Goliath is the classic underdog tale. David is small; Goliath is big. But what we often fail to recognize in this story is the size of God. God is HUGE. David is victorious in his battle with Goliath because he relies on God’s size, not his own. David aligns his agenda to God’s will, not the other way around. When we try to fight our own battles, we often fail because our giants are too…

David & Samuel

Samuel doesn’t expect God to guide him to choose David to be the next king. David is the youngest, the weakest, and the least likely candidate in the family of Jesse. But God looks deeper than outward appearances. As God guides Samuel to anoint David, Samuel and David rely on God’s wisdom and intimate knowledge about each of their identities. We are all clay jars, cracked and imperfect, but God has a plan for every one of us. His plan…

God & Country

When God created all things, he created two kingdoms: one here on Earth, and one in Heaven. As Christians, we have confidence that we will one day join God in the Heavenly Kingdom for eternity. However, we sometimes get confused about what we’re to do here in the earthly kingdom. In a society that isn’t always aligned with our Christian values, we might forget our earthly kingdom is only temporary. Ultimately, God is in charge of all things, including our…

Come Together: God’s People for the Gospel

Whenever the Holy Spirit breaks our hearts with the law and renews our hope in the Gospel, the Accuser quickly attacks our faith and tries to lead us back into pride, trouble, and despair. Because nothing is more of a threat to him than Christians overflowing with the hope of the Gospel. Despite these difficulties, God comforts and strengthens us. When we come together around the Gospel, we are strengthened in faith. God gives us his Word, Sacraments, and people…

God’s Call to Fathers

Fathers often feel ill-equipped to lead their households, struggling with the burdens they feel to provide for their families. However, like mothers, fathers play unique and important roles in their families. God has called fathers to train and instruct their children to fear the Lord and share Him with their world. Sermon text: Ephesians 6:4

God’s Call to Citizens

In a “cancel culture” society, you may find it difficult to honor and respect elected officials with different values and beliefs than your own. In His Word, God reminds us that He is the one who places people in positions of authority to fulfill His purpose. God has given us the gift of government, and so he calls us to be godly citizens. Sermon text: Romans 13:1-7

God’s Call to Employers

Being in a position of power and responsibility is a heavy burden to bear for those who employ others, and it can be tempting to use this power over others for our own benefit. Employers should use God’s wisdom in making decisions that impact their employees. This helps them lead with fairness and treat all with dignity and respect. Sermon Text: Ephesians 6:9
