1 Samuel 29:1-30:31 // God's story in bringing his anointed king out of the wilderness comes to a close, and we see three gospel lenses: The Understated Gospel (For The Stuck), The Relentless Gospel (For the Overwhelmed), and The Extravagant Gospel (For The Weary).
The Preventative Grace of God

1 Samuel 25:1-44 // At every moment, God’s sovereign grace is holding back the tide of sin and evil, and it is his providence that chooses the time and place to release the tide and bring it back in. But if we are safe in Jesus Christ, the great mercy of God, he will never let the tide sweep us away.
God Protects His Purpose

1 Samuel 19:1-24 // God has and will protect you for his purpose. Even when the spears of life and sin seem to come from every side, God is still working for his purpose in your life, and he will protect through others, through his people themselves, and through inexplicable divine deliverance.
Seeing Through God's Eyes
January 31, 2021 • Drake Osborn
1 Samuel 16:1-23 // The narrative of 1 Samuel contrasts the way we see the world with the way God does. We are shortsighted by fearing the unknown, failing to see spiritual realities, and dismissing the grace of God when it is right in front of us. Through his anointed king, God rearranges our sight to look directly at Christ.
