"MAKING A DIFFERENCE"

Rev. Lon Lorton

1 Samuel 17

“Well, you can’t just sit there.”  [Larry Walters, 1982]

TRUTH #1: NO ENEMY IS TOO STRONG  (1 Samuel 17:4)

  • We have giant-sized Goliaths in our lives.
  • Our faith makes a difference.

TRUTH #2: NO WEAPON IS TOO WEAK  (1 Samuel 17:26)

  • It is totally about God and the weapons He brings to our fights.

TRUTH #3: NO BATTLE IS TOO BIG  (1 Samuel 17:47)

  • It is about giving all glory to God.
  • Are we willing to take a bold stand?
  • Romans 8:38-39

THERE IS A DIFFEERENCE…
What’s the difference between a kayak and a speedboat?  A kayak requires human effort.  It will only take me at a speed I can achieve and will only go as far as I am able.  The acceleration and distance of a speedboat is determined by a power source greater than myself, and I am not over-exerted or tired in the process.
