Message: Picking Up the Pieces: Surviving the Failure of Sin (2 Samuel 11-12)

Sin hurts you and those around you as well. When we sin, others pay the price. When we lose our temper, others suffer. When we lie, others suffer. When we are unfaithful, others suffer. The book of Second Samuel tells us about David, how he seduced Bathsheba, had her husband killed, then took her as his wife. As David began his rendezvous with Bathsheba, he probably never gave any thought whatsoever about the consequences of his sin. We can learn some lessons from David. When confronted, David admitted he had sinned against the Lord (2 Samuel 12:13). This is the first step to surviving the failure of sin – confession. Confess your sins, take full responsibility for your actions, and surrender your will to God’s will. You know what God does when we do that? He forgives totally and completely. That’s the goodness of God. You can survive the failure of sin. You can experience God’s grace today and be forgiven.

Message: Picking Up the Pieces: Surviving Failed Relationships (2 Samuel 19)

None of us are immune to failure. We’ve all had our experiences with a failed relationship; spouses, friends, or a parent and child. It’s hard to pick up the pieces. Proverbs 24:16 tells us “Though a righteous man falls seven times, he will get up.” There are some lessons to be learned. Listen and be blessed.

Message: Don’t Give Up

 What do you do when you ask God for help and He doesn’t seem to answer? When Lazarus became sick, his sisters, Mary and Martha, asked Jesus to come. By the time Jesus arrived, Lazarus had been dead several days.

You may ask some of these questions. Why does God allow bad things to happen? How can the Lord see so much suffering and be silent? Where is God? Why doesn’t God show up when I need Him the most?

Sometimes we pray only to experience His stillness. What do you do when you ask, when you seek, when you knock and – when you do that – God seems silent? Some think God doesn’t care and they give up. Maybe you are on the verge of giving up today. When God is silent, don’t give up!

The fact is that God answers prayers. Prayers cause things to happen! God loves us. He wants us to grow (James 1:2-3). And like in the case of Mary and Martha when Jesus raised Lazarus from the dead – sometimes God wants to show off (in a good way).

Message: What Shall I Do?

 Why did Jesus have to die? To answer this question, we will travel back in time and answer these questions. Who was Barabas? Why did the crowd choose Barabas? What difference does it make? What does it mean to us?

What shall I do with Jesus? Choices, choices, choices! No one can escape this question. You can choose Jesus or the world’s way. You must make a choice. The world leads to destruction; but Jesus died so you could be forgiven. Your decision effects your eternity. I pray you choose Jesus today.
