SERMON CENTRE

 

We are holding services at the church each Sunday at 10.30am to which all are welcome. We post sermon recordings of the services on our YouTube channel and on this site.

We also meet on Tuesdays at 10am and 7.30pm (apart from the weeks after Lord's Supper) - follow the link above to visit our 'Ministries' page for more details including 'specials'.

The 'Recording' links will take you to our YouTube channel where you can listen to, or see videos of, sermons at the Church. Please subscribe to the channel whilst you're there. Follow the 'Notes' link to find PDF notes associated with the various sermons. One-off sermons won't appear on these 'series' pages but can be found on our YouTube channel.

May the Lord bless you as you listen to God's Word faithfully proclaimed.

CURRENT SERIES
Seeking after God's own heart
PART 3
 
Growing in faith from the life of King David

How does the world define a successful life?

  • Plenty of money and comforts?

  • Good looks and a defined body?

  • Climbing the career ladder?

  • A dream relationship and family?

We can chase after many things, but we all ask at some point in our lives, “What really counts?”

God looks to things that matter eternally, not the temporary successes which can fade as quickly as they are attained.

In His description of King David, God said, “the Lord has sought out a man after his own heart and appointed him ruler of his people” (1 Samuel 13:14). God’s choice as leader of his people was someone who sought after His heart – one who loved and desired to follow the Lord above all else.

David’s life wasn’t smooth – he faced threats to his life from his predecessor and family members.

David certainly wasn’t perfect – he committed some calamitous sins with huge consequences.

And yet, the New Testament records that “God testified concerning him: ‘I have found David son of Jesse, a man after my own heart; he will do everything I want him to do.’” (Acts 13:22).

As we learn from the life of King David and seek to grow in faith in Jesus, we’re going to spend 3 seasons over this year understanding how we might seek after God’s own heart, just as David did.

Let’s be convinced that a successful life is one that seeks after God.

Let’s ask God to shape our hearts so they become more like His.

Let’s enjoy the eternal blessings that flow from knowing the Lord!
