1 Samuel 8: Who's Your King?

February 11, 2018 Speaker: Rory Macdonald Series: After God's Heart: The Life of David

Topic: Sunday Gathering Passage: 1 Samuel 8:1–8:22

In 1 Samuel 8, the people Israel demand an earthly ruler, rejecting God as their one true king.  And just like them, each of us has 'kings' in our lives that we've allowed to take His rightful place.

But where earthly rulers take from their people without limit and can even demand their lives, Jesus is a king like no other - he gives himself to his people, even to the point of death, to rescue us from the tyranny of the idols that have set themselves up as kings in our lives!

Discover how surrendering to the kingship of Jesus is actually where our freedom, fullness, and joy are to be most perfectly and gloriously found!
