In this final message in our Kings & Prophets series, we meet an interesting king who could genuinely be called one of the best kings of Israel. But even though he was the best, he still left one of the worst legacies. Listen to the warnings Pastor Brian shares from a king who found out that it's possible to mess up kingdom work at the very end of a faithful life!
Live long enough and you can find your tank empty. Physically, emotionally, and spiritually you feel empty, and darkness can descend on us. It can start by embracing fear, followed by isolation and retreat. We were never meant to live this life alone, yet in the face of fear, that's an easy and dangerous path to follow. This can lead to a sense of hopelessness that makes us want to give up as we repeat the lies that wrap us in the despair of darkness.
Can you relate? If so, this message Pastor Kip shares from the life of Elijah in 1 Kings. Watch this message and share it with your friends who are hurting. This season of darkness may leave a mark but does not need to define you. God draws near to hurting hearts.
We continue our Kings & Prophets series where we ask, "If some of the great Old Testament characters could say one thing to our generation, what would it be?" In this message, Pastor Skyler shares lessons from the life of the prophet Elisha. We learn that we were never designed to do life alone--we were created for relationship. We see from Elisha's relationship with Elijah that everyone needs a mentor.
The Old Testament is full of amazing characters who have countless lessons to teach us! In this series, we imagine what it would look like if they gave us the "talk of their lifetime"--their equivalent of their TED Talk. In this first message, Pastor Brian unpacks lessons about integrity from the life of King David.
