Part 1: Five Smooth Stones
Series: Slaying Giants
Jill Briscoe
1 Samuel 17

There is a battle going on. Goliath of Gath represents the evil forces opposed to the LORD God Almighty. God calls, equips, and empowers His servants for the good fight of faith for His honor and glory. By the age of 20, David, shepherd boy of Bethlehem, battle ready, had killed his first giant.

I. The Battle is the Lord's. I Samuel 17:47

A. A formidable foe.

B. An invincible Captain.

C. A man after God's own heart.

II. The Making of a Giant Killer.


Part 2: Getting Off the Roof
Series: Slaying Giants
Jill Briscoe
2 Samuel 11

David fought and won battles with the Giants of pride, greed, revenge, fear, and despair, and wrote Psalms of praise to his God that are sung in hundreds of languages thousands of years later. David did well for two decades. Then came "middle age." The Giants of Wrath, conferring about which of their number to send out to bring David down, chose one of their most trusted and best: Giant Temptation. "Let's see what you can do," they said as they sent him on his way from the dark places. Giant Temptation settled down to wait for his opportunity. It was not long in coming. And so it was "in the time that kings went forth to war, David stayed at home."

I. Getting On the Roof: David and Bathsheba. 2 Samuel 11:1-5

A. David's steps.
1. He was lax. Psalm 119:9-11

2. He was self-indulgent. Deuteronomy 17:14-18


Part 3: Is There Life After Sin?
Series: Slaying Giants
Jill Briscoe
Psalm 51

David did that which was right in the eyes of the Lord and turned not aside from anything that He commanded, save only in the matter of Uriah the Hittite (1 Kings 15:5, NIV). David broke seven of the ten commandments in one night of sensual indulgence. Sin is coming short of God's standard and has consequences. Is there any sin too big for God to forgive? Can someone who has sinned be restored and renewed? Can God use them again? In other words, is there "life after sin"?

I. David Was Losing Some GIANT Battles: Playing With the Snake and Flirting With
the Flame.

A. Know yourself. Psalm 51:5

B. Be honest. Psalm 51:6
