Dave Cross is our guest speaker this week. James says, "The prayer of a righteous man is powerful and effective." Do you believe that? This week Dave unpacks that for us. We'll see what James had in mind when he said this, and how it applies to us today.
Today we continue looking at The Story of David, this week in 1 Samuel 25, where we see the story of Nabal. David protected that which was Nabal's, but in the end, Nabal wanted nothing to do with David. We'll see how that was received, and what we can learn from it today.
Sermons from Waverly First Baptist Church, Waverly, NY. Guest Pastor Leroy Woodruff. Today Leroy tells us about Isaac, and his growing up with Abraham as his father. You would think that would be enough. But Isaac had to learn, much as each of us has to learn. Eventually, the faith of our father's has to become our faith.
Sermon from Waverly First Baptist Church, Waverly, NY. Pastor Steve Dygert. We are continuing our series titled The Story of David, and this week we are looking at his time in the wilderness. Geographical wilderness. I love getting away and spending time in the wilderness. We all go through times of wilderness, but it's not spent in the wild. I call it, Circumstantial Wilderness. You feel all alone, but you didn't go anywhere. We'll talk about this morning.
Up until this point in The Story of David, while there is no denying that David’s life in Saul’s royal court was dangerous, at least it had some glimmers of hope. The King could be brought back from his rage and jealousy, at least most of the time, with David’s music. But as we saw last week, Saul is beyond that now. So David runs. And it’s important to note, he appears to run without packing a bag, without a plan, without food. With just the clothes on his back, he runs for his life. And where does he run? He runs to Nob, where there is a sanctuary and priests. Watch and see what happens next...
