Larry delivers an exciting and engaging lesson on the Gospel of Mark through Mark himself. This narrative sermon immerses the listener into the thinking process of Mark as he tells the story of Jesus.
Faced with certain evidence to the contrary, Abraham believes God when he is called out of his home and family to established a new nation through his offspring, even though he is already past 70 years old. God reveals more and more of Himself to Abraham along the way, as His promises increase in scale and Abraham's faith grows. We walk beside Abraham as our faith is tested as his, and we share with Abraham the wonder of growing trust in God because of the trials we walk through with Him. Abraham's refrain is, "What do you do when the Creator of the universe tells you to do something? You do it!"
2 Samuel 7:1-17
King David is brought to life
in this dramatic narrative sermon preached February 15, 2015 by Larry Mudd at the Manhattan Church of Christ. Many themes from David's journey are explored from the Books of Samuel, from Yahweh's calling David as a young shepherd boy through to Yahweh's extension of forgiveness to David after the king's infidelity with Bathsheba. The importance of faith, of reliance upon God and of seeking His presence is a theme throughout David's life, as well as his recognition that Yahweh is the source of all victory and goodness in the life of Israel and of her king, David. David reflects on the covenant Yahweh makes with him, as well as on the practical matters of how to deal with boredom.
