2 Samuel

Bible Reading is on 2 Samuel 4:1-12.

Sermon Points
1. There are times when God-centred talk are used to disguise man-centred motives.

2. God’s righteous King will serve as a Judge, who judges the motives of our hearts.

The times of ignorance God overlooked, but now he commands all people everywhere to repent, because he has fixed a day on which he will judge the world in righteousness by a man whom he has appointed; and of this he has given assurance to all by raising him from the dead.” (Acts 17:30-31, ESV)

Therefore do not pronounce judgement before the time, before the Lord comes, who will bring to light the things now hidden in darkness and will disclose the purposes of the heart. Then each one will receive his commendation from God. (1 Corinthians 4:5, ESV)

For we must all appear before the judgement seat of Christ, so that each one may receive what is due for what he has done in the body, whether good or evil. (2 Corinthians 5:10, ESV)

3. A life controlled by me-centred motives will end in severe judgment.

4. God’s righteous King and the good news of deliverance.

[…] “As the Lord lives, who has redeemed my life out of every adversity, […] (2 Samuel 4:9, ESV)
