Series: Reformation
Duration: 27 mins 32 secs
Back from the wedding week-end and getting back to the Reformation this week. It seems most people believe the central theme or most important truth from the Reformers was justification by faith. That is certainly critical to the recovery of the Gospel the Reformation was about - and we will get to it - but I believe even more central and basic was the question of "Who says?", the issue of authority. The Church of the day believed that the Church itself, through the popes and councils, was the ultimate authority. Luther and the Reformers believed that the Word of God was the authority, even before and over the Church. We will explore that and some implications this Lord's Day.

So we will be taking a break from our Samuel series in October for pumpkin spice, no wait, more directly Reformation themed sermons. It is a daunting and likely impossible task to say just when the Reformation began, but a commonly agreed upon and convenient date is when Martin Luther nailed his articles for debate, the "95 Theses", to the community bulletin board (the church door) in Wittenberg. That was October 31, 1517. Hence 500 years. The first week of each month is our communion service and so that will be our focus this week. A bit about how the Reformation reformed communion and more about what we do, why, and how. Seems like it has been a while since we have had a full communion address.

Well, if you thought after the Bathsheba chapter we were out of the ugliness you might need to reconsider. This week we find the kingdom of David cracking open to reveal lust, rape, anger, disgrace, hatred, and murder. May sound like the average TV show anymore but this was real and this was really bad. Making sense of it and finding any "moral to the story" is challenging. We'll see if I am up to the challenge Sunday. Prayer ahead would be appreciated!

So where does David's terrible series of sinful choices leave him? We got a hint right at the end of the chapter when we are told in no uncertain terms that what he had done was evil in God's eyes. But, then, in an unexpected move God sends a prophet with a story. A story that leads to revelation, accusation, confession, repentance, forgiveness, and enduring consequences. A lot to try to take in and apply!

Duration: 23 mins 56 secs
Last week we saw the beautiful picture of David remembering his experience of covenant love and faithfulness and looking for someone to show it to himself. He found that person in Jonathan's son Miphiboseth and freely gave him protection, provision, and a new position. As we turn the page we see David again extending covenant faithfulness only to have it rudely rejected plunging nations into a war. David is certainly not the only one to have love and peace rejected and the consequences are always severe. We'll think about that.

We're back. Survived the cycling vacation with fairly minor injuries and very major enjoyment. The beautiful and challenging ride along the CA coast from Carmel by the Sea to Big Sur was a highlight we will never forget. Speaking of never forgetting...some 15 to 20 years after David made a promise to Jonathan he still remembers it and acts upon it. We will look at the touching story of David and Mephibosheth and reflect on the important matter of covenant faithfulness. Ready to get back to it? I am.
