Waiting for The True King

A Series in 1 Samuel

Waiting for the True King

Waiting for the True King - 1 Samuel • June 24, 2018 • Steve Cree

The book of 1 Samuel finishes where it started. With the proud king dead in the grave, we are still waiting for God’s humble king, who will be raised up

The Suffering King

Waiting for the True King - 1 Samuel • June 17, 2018 • Steve Cree

David endured suffering at the hand of Israel’s corrupt leader, just like Jesus endured suffering at the hand of corrupt leaders. Followers of Jesus walk in the steps of a suffering king, who will share in his hope.

Swearing Allegiance to the King

Waiting for the True King - 1 Samuel • June 10, 2018 • Nathan Campbell

Jonathan sees that David is God’s chosen king, and so renounces any claim to the throne, by swearing allegiance to David.  When we see that Jesus is God’s true King, we renounce our claim to self-rule and swear to serve Jesus.

Seeing the King

Waiting for the True King - 1 Samuel • June 3, 2018 • Ryan Dehnert

Proud Saul, the king after Israel’s heart, is rejected for the humble David, the king after God’s own heart.  In Jesus, we see the king in whom God’s heart delights.

Obeying the King

Waiting for the True King - 1 Samuel • May 27, 2018 • Steve Cree

God judges Saul and rejects him as king because he disobeyed.  Israel, who asked for a king just like the nations, has become just like the nations.  Jesus is the true king who obeys God, and brings people from all nations into obedience.

Crowning the King

Waiting for the True King - 1 Samuel • May 20, 2018 • Steve Cree

The elevation of Saul is the crowning moment of Israel’s sin. The crucifixion of Jesus is both the crowning moment of the world’s sin and the great reversal where God’s true king deals with the sin of the world.

Worshipping the King

Waiting for the True King - 1 Samuel • May 13, 2018 • Steve Cree

Israel’s request for a King like the nations is the decisive moment in turning their hearts from worshiping God. Jesus is the true King for the nations who turns our heart to worship God

Listening to the King

Waiting for the True King - 1 Samuel • May 6, 2018 • Steve Cree

Samuel listens to God’s word, so lives for his purposes. Israel don’t listen to God so try to use God for their purposes. Jesus listens to God’s word and brings us into God’s purpose.

Serving the King

Waiting for the True King - 1 Samuel • April 29, 2018 • Steve Cree

We continue in our series in 1 Samuel- WAITING FOR THE TRUE KING. Last week we saw that Hannah in her grief and affliction was waiting for God’s true King, anticipating the whole world’s need for a King, Jesus. today we see: that God has raised up a faithful priest who has sacrificed himself for us all.

Waiting for the King

Waiting for the True King - 1 Samuel • April 22, 2018 • Steve Cree

Hannah epitomizes the plight of Israel: empty and afflicted, but still loved by God. The difference is that Hannah is waiting for God’s true King. This anticipates the whole world’s need for Jesus.
