Series: 1 Samuel
Duration: 22 mins 50 secs
Last week we touched on the friendship of David and Jonathan. This week we look at that more closely as Saul becomes even more seriously homicidal toward David and he relies on the covenant promise, covenant faithfulness, and covenant love of Jonathan. Important implications and applications for us. We too have covenant relationships, the most important of which is with the Lord Jesus.

Series: 1 Samuel
Duration: 27 mins 10 secs
So now that David has defeated Goliath and is more and more clearly God's man on the scene, he quickly becomes the most loved and admired man in Israel. You know, he is that guy all the women want to marry, or marry their daughter off to, all the men want to be his best friend. But, ya know in this broken world there are always a few who resent, mistrust, and even hate someone like that. In the last chapter it was David's older brother. In the chapters we will look at this week it gets much, much worse because it is Saul, the king. In many ways the man David is doing the most good for! But deep down we all know how little that matters once dark things like fear, envy, and resentment start to stir. We will see both the terrible results of letting those dark things lose and the sovereignty of a Lord who is having none of it.

In a significant way, all of 1 Samuel so far has been introduction. The main character, the one who so points us to Jesus, is David. The saga of Saul is not over but this week the spotlight moves from him to the coming king. Seems a most unlikely choice, youngest of the family, left out of the line-up when the prophet appears. Yet he is the one God chooses. Seeing that again may teach us a thing or two.

So this week we finish chapter 14 and move through chapter 15 of 1 Samuel. That section presents us with some major head-scratchers. First we have a rather glowing summary of the administration of Saul followed by his rejection by God. Very odd sequence. Then we encounter one of those pictures that many non-Christians hate, many liberals reject, and that make Christians very uneasy. God requires the total elimination of a nomadic tribe. Has God changed to the kinder, gentler New Testament God? Many think so. We'll have to ponder that. And then, as if that is not enough, and still on the subject of God changing, we have a clear and beautiful statement that God does not change or repent. The problem is that powerful and clear assertion is in the same chapter that tells us - twice! - that God repented.

This week we will read sections of two chapters and see the sharp contrast between two figures, father and son, and two ways of thinking about God. Saul practices religion while Jonathan lives out faith. We'll see how one works and the other fails miserably.

Series: 1 Samuel
Duration: 21 mins 41 secs
Pretty much everything getting back to normal this week and we are returning after our holiday hiatus to 1 Samuel. Picking up where we left off, Saul, the anointed king, acts as the last of the judges in the chapter before us. There is evil oppression, an appeal for help, and the Holy Spirit empowers a man to lead God's people to victory over the oppressive evil. We will talk about the temptation to surrender, the effects of compromise, as well as the beauty and availability of salvation from the Lord. Saul was the agent, but once again God saved his people.

Series: New Years
Duration: 20 mins 28 secs
Well this doesn't happen often. We begin a new year on the Lord's Day. Seems appropriate in so many ways even if we are all a bit tired from being up till after midnight just to make sure 2016 is really gone! We'll gather for fellowship and worship, think about how to grow a stronger faith in the new year, and take our hopes and fears before the Lord in prayer and at His table. What a great way to get a new year rolling!

Passage: Luke 2:22-40
Series: Advent
Duration: 22 mins 57 secs
And so this is Christmas. People keep asking, “Are you ready for Christmas?” Well, ready or not here it is. Connie is cooking, cleaning, all that, I am working on sermons and helping by staying out of her way. We will be ready. Together we have been trying to be ready, in the spiritual sense anyway, really the most important way, by Advent services and activities. Now the day is just about upon us. Christmas Eve we will gather as we usually do and do a good bit of singing, hear some familiar Scripture, and be thinking a bit about those folks too often thought of as minor characters in the Christmas story. Too easy to think of ourselves as minor characters also even when Paul corrects that with the image of the Body and so on. Let’s see why we are important to our Lord and to one another.
