When You Let God Down (2 Samuel 15-16)

David has let God down with catastrophic sinning as king over Israel. His sinning has dramatically affected his ability to rule as he is no longer giving justice to the oppressed nor ruling in righteousness. His son Absalom has returned from exile without a shred of repentance and David has accepted him back. This is going to lead to another catastrophe in David’s life. What I want us to pay attention to in this text is how David handles more failures in his life. What will David do when his life is falling apart? What will David think of God? What will be David’s response?

He’s Coming Back (Acts 1:6-11)

One of the teachings that Jesus gave to his disciples was that it was necessary and important for him to go to the Father. You may remember Jesus telling his disciples that he must go away and where he is going they cannot follow. Why was it so important for Jesus to leave and ascend to the Father? The ascension of Jesus is sometimes not considered very important in the life of Jesus. We will often speak about his coming to earth, his perfect life, his death, and his resurrection.

But Absalom has committed premeditated murder against his half-brother, Amnon, for raping his sister, Tamar. As king, David needs to make sure that justice is given. But this is David’s son and David’s heart is compromised as he has committed a similar sin. We noted in the last lesson that sin stains our ability to see what is right and just…

Why Do You Believe? (Acts 1:1-5)

Why do you believe? It is an important question that we must answer to ourselves. It is a question that you may have asked yourself as you take this journey with Jesus. But the answer to the question is very important. Sometimes people will say that the reason they believe is because the Bible says so. Sometimes people will say that believe because this is what their parents taught them or this is what they have always done. I hope to change that answer because it is not the basis by which we are to have faith. Jesus wants us to have a different answer for why we believe. Why you believe will affect the outcome of what has been promised to you. Open your copies of God’s word to Acts 1…
