Sermon Text: 2 Samuel 6:1-23


  1. Self-Sufficiency
  2. Sin
  3. Surprised by Grace

Reflection Questions:

  1. When/where do you find yourself believing the lie of self-sufficiency? (e.g. Which of your competencies do you allow to cloud your view of God? …What kind of “guarantees” do you attach to your talents?).
  2. How is the holiness of God perhaps present, but peripheral in your life?
  3. How will you embrace the following liberties in the week ahead: listening to the Words of your Heavenly Father; casting aside pressure to perform; worshiping God not to impress, but just cause you can; speaking openly to others about the goodness of God; and giving presents to people?
