    Morning Service – Growing Old
    Series: Growing Old
    Growing Old AGE RELATED OBSERVATIONS CHALLENGES I. Physical Changes (1:1-4) 2 Samuel 5:4 David was thirty years old when he became king, and he reigned forty years. II. Rebellious Child Adonijah David's 4th son Three strikes against him (6) 1) Undisciplined by his father 2) Handsome 3) Next in line to be King Discipline your children carefully while they are young, so that they will grow into self-disciplined adults. Proverbs 22:15 Folly is bound up in the heart of a child, but the rod of discipline will drive it far away. Proverbs 29:15 A rod and a reprimand impart wisdom, but a child left undisciplined disgraces its mother. Proverbs 29:17 Discipline your children, and they will give you peace; they will bring you the delights you desire. Sealing an action with religious ceremony does not make it God's will. III. Who will take your place as the head of the family? Ecclesiastes 2:18-19 I hated all the things I had toiled for under the sun, because I must leave them to the one who comes after me. And who knows whether that person will be wise or foolish? Yet they will have control over all the fruit of my toil into which I have poured my effort and skill under the sun. This too is meaningless. IV. Godly children V. Finish well 1 Chronicles 28-29 (pg. 426) What are we passing on to our children - our legacy? Getting old(er) is not the end, it's a time of great opportunity. Let us “end well”.

    Morning Service – The Cost of Obedience
    The Cost of Obedience 2 Samuel 24 & 1Chron. 21 Psalm 20:7 Some trust in chariots and some in horses, but we trust in the name of the LORD our God. Some of our greatest challenges / temptations come right on the heels of our greatest victories. 5 parts / words I. PRIDE (1-8) Proverbs 16:18 Pride goes before destruction, a haughty spirit before a fall. Luke 12 “bigger barns” thinking! Luke 12:19-21 And I'll say to myself, “You have plenty of grain laid up for many years. Take life easy; eat, drink and be merry.” “But God said to him, 'You fool! This very night your life will be demanded from you. Then who will get what you have prepared for yourself?' “This is how it will be with whoever stores up things for themselves but is not rich toward God.” II. OPTIONS (9-15) **Our actions effect others.** PLAGUE 70,000 men died III. RESPONSIBILITY (16-17) AWE! **We were designed by God to live in AWE of God, and when we fail to do so God brings things into our lives to remind us. IV. OBEDIENCE (18-24) Araunah *(24) “full price” V. WORSHIP (25-22:1) Genesis 22:2 Then God said, “Take your son, your only son, whom you love–Isaac–and go to the region of Moriah. Sacrifice him there as a burnt offering on a mountain I will show you.” 2 Chronicles 3:1 Then Solomon began to build the temple of the LORD in Jerusalem on Mount Moriah, where the LORD had appeared to his father David. It was on the threshing floor of Araunah the Jebusite, the place provided by David. Pride -> Consequences {turning point} -> Responsibility for sin -> Obedience -> Worship/ AWE

    Series: Family First
    Absalom 2 Samuel 13 Leviticus 18:11 “Do not have sexual relations with the daughter of your father's wife, born to your father; she is your sister.” Tamar's 4 reasons God's law – “wicked thing” Tamar – “disgrace" Amnon – “wicked fools” Better alternitive - Marriage   Lust turned to hatred (13:15) Deuteronomy 22:28-29 If a man happens to meet a virgin who is not pledged to be married and rapes her and they are discovered, he shall pay her father fifty shekels of silver. He must marry the young woman, for he has violated her. He can never divorce her as long as he lives.   Tension in the Palace!   *David never punished his son Amnon for his sin and Absalom never forgot that.   Absalom murdered Amnon (32b)   Absalom waited, but his father never came!   Sin that is not dealt with will fester and explode at a later date.   *No victory on the battle field {business} compensates for defeat at home.   God desires restoration not banishment. (14:14)
