Sermon Passage: 1 Samuel 8:19-22
Sermon Title: Who is your King?
Sermon By: Pastor Davy (Youth)
In Israel’s history, they have seen the plagues of Egypt, they have seen God provide them an escape route through the Red Sea, they have seen manna and quail fall out of the sky for food, they have seen water come out of rocks, they have seen the walls of Jericho fall, they have seen the mighty strength of Samson and many more miracles credited to their God, the Lord Yahweh. Yet, Israel demands a King.
But how about us? don’t we have kings in our lives that we are serving, mistakenly believing that they might offer more to us than God? Don’t we serve kings that promise us things that will never become a reality? Our hunger for success, friends, community, recognition, and love will never be satisfied by the things of this world.
Only in Christ can we have joy even when we don’t succeed. Only in Christ can we have a friend who has given up his life for us. Only in Christ can we build a community to share life with. Only in Christ can we recognized as a Child of God. Only in Christ can we find love.
who is your King? God is enough. serve God as your only King.
