1 Samuel: After God’s Own Heart

1 Samuel 15 and Various Psalms

1 Samuel: Like All the Other Nations

1 Samuel 8

Pastor Darin continues our summer study through 1 Samuel.  Israel wanted to be like all the other nations and did their best to justify their rejection of God as their king.  Do we recognize the subtle ways we too reject God and then try to rationalize it because "everyone else is doing it"?  Do we understand the consequences?

Matthew 5

Guest speaker John Owen.  There is a difference between Christianity and actually knowing Christ.  John challenges us to recognize the significance of the outward religious things that we do, but realize that these are not the end goal.  Knowing Jesus and becoming like Him is the point.  Many people go through the motions of Christianity, but do not have an intimate relationship with Jesus or bear His likeness.  This problem contributes to the negative opinion many Americans have of "Christians."
