The key to bearing much fruit is abiding in Jesus. One of the keys to this is learning to develop a relationship with the Holy Spirit. What a way to live!!
Jesus tells His disciples that they can have peace because their eternal destiny is being prepared and that they can have life now by knowing God. That’s also for you and me!
We see that Jesus is the only way to be saved.
Jesus reveals that He is the ‘Bread of Life’. If you want satisfaction in life, then Jesus is the place to go!
A sermon asking the question – ‘Do you know Him?’ as opposed to ‘Do you know about Him?’. It highlights some of the characteristics of people that know God and encourages us all to get to know an amazing God.
Carrying on with the story of David and Goliath, we review what David was putting his faith in – namely the name of God and that God would fight for him and also we see the importance of declaring God’s name and victory out loud.
We see that out of a lifestyle of worship and service David developed a heart and then lifestyle which was determined that God would be honoured. 1 Samuel 17 and the confrontation between David and Goliath is our starting point. We learn some core things about identity and having a heart to serve God.
David’s epitaph was that God considered him to be a man after His own heart. This sermon encourages us to be like David and be a worshipper above everything else – the rest of our Christian lives will flow out of that.
