Sermon Scripture: 1 Samuel 16
Sermon Big Idea: Rejection is a heart condition. Will we believe in our hearts how Jesus came into the world and what He came to do?
- Israel rejected God as King because they didn’t like what they could see. (1 Samuel 8:1-7)
- God rejected Saul as King because of what Saul wouldn’t see. (1 Samuel 13:13-14; 15:11,22,27-29)
- God rejected David’s brothers as King so that Israel may see. (1 Samuel 16:6-7)
- The world rejected Jesus as King because they didn’t see. (John 1:9-13)
The message from Bethlehem is, “A light has come into the world. Does your heart see and accept it?”
