Running Away from God

Text: Jonah 1:1-3
Speaker: Jim Newheiser
Outline: PDF
Date: May 17, 2015

With this sermon we will begin a short series through the book of Jonah.  The story of Jonah is famous because of the great fish which swallowed Jonah.  The main topic of this book, however, is the greatness of God Who controls all things and Who shows great mercy to undeserving sinners.

When God initially calls Jonah, the prophet runs.  How does God call us today?  Have some of us been resisting His call?

David Rescued by a Woman

Text: 1 Samuel 25
Speaker: Jim Newheiser
Outline: PDF
Date: May 10, 2015

For Mother’s Day I have chosen a text which tells about Abagail who was a remarkable woman and a mother in Israel.  She is one of my favorite biblical characters.  What we know about her doesn’t exactly fit the mold of the quiet passive lady.  She boldly takes initiative to rescue her own family and doing so also saves David from acting rashly and vengefully.

Before listening to this sermon please read 1 Samuel 25.   Do you think that Abigail was justified to go behind her husband’s back and against his wishes?  How and when can godly women today follow her example?
