“Compelling Authority”

1 Samuel 19:18-24

Rev. Tyler Dirks

Sermon Outline:

  1. Our Authority
  2. Our Affection
  3. Our Acquiescence

Reflection Questions:

  1. In what specific area of life do you most crave control? What do you obsessively monitor and manage?
  2. How do you spin your over-controlling tendencies, and seek to justify yourself?
  3. How has the Holy Spirit demythologized your ‘authority complex,’ and disabused you of our self-justifications?
  4. How have you ‘justified’ your obsessive monitoring and managing tendencies “because you care so much”?
  5. How has the Holy Spirit superseded and supplanted your sinful versions of affection with an affection for a crucified King (Hebrews 12:2)?
