Absalom's Conspiracy

In 2 Samuel 15, Absalom begins to strategically steal the hearts of the people so he could become king. As leaders and believers, we can't stick our heads in the sand when things get tough, and we can't take on the role of being a cheerleader instead of an umpire. Absalom took advantage of the people and his conspiracy grew. We have to hold each other accountable. We ourselves must be teachable in order to always be learning and we must be reading/studying the scriptures daily to prevent ourselves from being prideful like Absalom was.

RE-RELEASE #23-Boys to Men Pt. 1

In Deuteronomy 6, we are told to impart the commandments on our children throughout their entire day. Jesus was fully man and fully God and he went from a boy to a man because he desired to do his Father's work. We can teach our kids about the Father's work and we can set a high bar for our kids so they go from boyhood to being a man of God. Jesus matured and increased in stature and wisdom and He matured and grew in His faith and that's what happens when we engage in the Father's business.

#98-C2C Pt. 2

In Luke 22, Peter denied Jesus three times. Jesus looked at Peter with love and pursued him after his resurrection. Peter went back to fishing, but Jesus met Peter on the shore in John 21 and he wanted to challenge  and teach Peter that he no longer needed to be fearful of man. We too can walk in the unconditional love that Jesus alone provides.

#97-C2C

In second Samuel 24, David's pride shows itself as he takes a 10-month census to count how many soldiers he had. At the end of the census David realizes the sin he committed and how he had put his hope in the number of fighting men over his trust in the Lord. David owns his sin and falls on his face before the Lord. There were consequences, but David modeled what true repentance looks like and he ran to the Lord. Have you owned your sin and are you running toward or away from the Lord?

#96-Cultural Consequences

In 2 Samuel 21, David asks the Gibeonites how he can atone for Israel's sin against them. David was dealing with the consequences from Saul's sin, but he sought the Lord with courage. There are individual and cultural consequences when we take our eyes off the Lord. We must rise up, put a stake in the ground, and take on the consequences In the name of the Lord.
