Epic Week 20 : From Scoundrel to Sovereign
May 20, 2018 • Pastor Eric Jaffe
1 Samuel 20, 24, 2 Samuel 5: 1-5 - God was blessing David, and this made Saul jealous. David narrowly escaped Saul’s murderous attempts with his life and begins many years of escaping into the wilderness with Saul trying to track him down to kill him. But God has His hand on David during these years and brings mighty men to surround him. Many adventures are had until one day Saul’s life comes to an end, and David watches as God sets him up as the next king of Israel.
David and Goliath
Epic Week 19 • May 13, 2018 • Pastor Eric Jaffe
In this weeks message from 1 Samuel 16 & 17 we talked about how Israel cried out for a King in spite of the warnings from Samuel. The majority of the message surrounded the selection and anointing of David as the future King of Israel and the battle between David and Goliath. Through the story we realized that we often try to put ourselves in David's shoes becoming the hero of the story when more often than not we are actually a lot more like the cowering Israelites. Which is ok, because David is really a type and shadow of who was to come. None other than Jesus himself who fights for us. Overcoming most of the difficult things in life are impossible apart from God. Let Jesus fight your battles for you!
