Kings In Conflict Part 1
September 07, 2022
Part 1 of 2
Too often, we cling to our lives and our possessions as if they belong to us, not God. This was Saul’s posture towards the kingdom God had entrusted to him. In this message, we distinguish three contrasts between King Saul’s character versus David’s. David begins to endure a long period of conflict, running as a fugitive while Saul burns with jealousy.
Growing Through Conflict
Everyone struggles with problems that seem too big to handle. Yet conflicts are unique opportunities in which you can learn how to rely more faithfully on God.
In Growing Through Conflict, best-selling author and beloved pastor Erwin W. Lutzer teaches you how to imitate David’s successes and avoid his failures. Your faith will be strengthened as you learn biblical truths from David’s example, like:
- Spiritual growth normally happens in hard times
- Doing God’s will is not always peaceful
- God expects us to endure struggles with patience
- God uses conflict to bring us to Christian maturity
Whether you face difficult relationships, unresolved grief, doubts about faith, or illicit desires, David’s life will show you how to grow in your relationship with God—even through conflict—because no challenge is too great for Him.
