Welcome to South! We're glad you joined us today. Below you will find some sermon notes and Bible passages, to help you follow along with Pastor Scott's message. He is in a series on the life of the biblical character David, and we hope you will be encouraged by what you learn from his life, today.
Foundational Thought

Sin, almost always, begins with a thrill, a rush, and fun. However, while sin starts off with fun and excitement, it always leads to the same place - brokenness, agony, disappointment, and despair.
The Progression of Sin, Step One

David was blessed. Life was very good for him at this time. The danger of a time of blessing is that we forget how dependent we are on God. Hard times create dependent people - whether that be on God or on something else. But when life showers us with blessings, pride can easily take over and God can get pushed to the side.

In his self-sufficiency, David chose to take more concubines and wives from Jerusalem.
The Progression of Sin, Step Two

David had a lack of engagement. This, and his subsequent lack of exhaustion made him susceptible to cheap thrills. David clearly teaches us the reality that the devil loves IDLE hands, because it makes it very easy for him to take us by the hand and lead us down the path of sin. If you are a follower of Christ’s, you need to be aware that Christ does not desire our lives to be lived on the sidelines.
The Progression of Sin, Step Three

David was in a place where he could be tempted. He put himself in a place where a temptation could be a possibility, and sure enough it became a reality. Sometimes the best way to resist a temptation is to take steps to avoid those things, people, and places where we can, and often are, tempted.
The Progression of Sin, Final Step

David saw her, inquired, and she came. Sadly, the ship didn't get turned around. And then it mushroomed.

We need to be killing sin -- otherwise, it will kill us. (Josh Owen quote)
