Reflections / Notes / Summary
- So, I’m beyond disappointed with my lack of info on this sermon. I usually keep everything but somehow the full text is gone. All I have is an outline. I even checked old emails. I emailed the pastor the outline but not the full text.
- Despite that, an outline is a better memory than nothing, so I’m posting it. Also, I spent 10 minutes on formatting the thumbnail for the blog. Can’t lose all that work.
- I remember this sermon went exceptionally well. I differentiated between rugged individuality and being the unique you that God calls you to be.
Summary: Well folks, a summary and an outline is all I’m good for on this one. Like I mentioned, though, I’d rather have an outline than nothing. So, here goes. This sermon somewhat reminded me of the scene in 300 when Leonidas removes his armor / helmet / etc before attacking Xerxes. Saul tried to get David to wear sixty pounds of armor and carry a spear when David wouldn’t have been able to do anything with all of that gear. David broke rank and used what he knew and what he had to do exactly what God needed him to do. If David would have tried to do it any other way he would have failed, he would have fallen flat on his face. But, he did things according to the way God had designed, and ended up being one of the best kings Israel ever had.
