“Bigger Isn’t Always Better”

Passage: 1 Samuel 17:32-50
Service Type:

Whatever the giant is in your life, day after day it has been robbing you of power. You’ve tried to stop the taunts, but you feel immobilized. Held back. Paralyzed from moving forward. Ultimately, you know you’re not living the fullness and freedom of life that God intends for you. How do you respond to the notion that Jesus, not you, is the David who has to defeat the giants in your life? What are the implications of this for the way you live your life? Jesus came to earth to give us victory over the oppressive giants we face. The Lord, like David, has already defeated the lion and the bear. He knows how to bring down our other enemies as well. We don't need a powerful government machine, a stock pile of nuclear weapons, a huge church or a high-tech social media outlet. The Carpenter from Nazareth and the Gentle Shepherd of our souls can bring us to peace and triumph over our enemies.
