Here's last weekend's sermon in 10 Tweets, "Security" (The David Story), 1 Samuel 8
1/ Right words don’t trump wrong motives. The elders asked for a king like all the nations. They were quoting the Law with wrong motives.
2/ When you are afraid or feeling insecure, you may say you trust in God, but God sees and God knows what you really trust.
3/ You do not have, because you do not ask. You ask and do not receive, because you ask wrongly, to spend it on your passions. (James 4:2-3)
4/ When it comes to our personal sense of security, what competes with God for our trust? Here’s a clue: It says In God We Trust on it.
5/ 3 trust tests: Takes away your money. Gives you a lot. Watches how you steward for him what you've got now—whether a little or a lot.
6/ Don’t waste God’s warnings.
7/ But the people refused to obey the voice of Samuel. And they said, “No! But there shall be a king over us” D.R. Davis: “Our immunity to wisdom.”
8/ Thank God for unanswered prayers.
9/ Grace: Our dumb decisions don’t determine our destiny.
10/ Grace: God redeems even the bad consequences of our sins.
