SunRidge Community Church
No matter where you find yourself, God provides equal access to His grace. God does not show favor to the rich and not to the poor. We see this in the story of David. He was overlooked by some, but not by God. There is much that we can learn from David’s story.

Is the Gospel merely the mechanism to forgive us, and then we spend the rest of our lives trying to become moral/ethical/better people? Is that what the Christian Faith is, or is there more to the Gospel than we think?

David // No matter where you find yourself, God provides equal access to His grace. God does not show favor to the rich and not to the poor. We see this in the story of David. He was overlooked by some, but not by God. There is much that we can learn from David’s story.

1 Samuel 17:32
Let no one lose heart on account of this Philistine; your servant will go and fight him.
1. We Must Face Everyday Challenges.
2. We Must Wisely Face Criticism and Opposition
3. We Must Face Our Goliath Trusting God.
1 Samuel 17:46
Today the LORD will conquer you, and I will give your flesh to the birds and wild animals…

DAVID
Lessons from Old Saints
SMALL GROUP QUESTIONS

S — Scripture
- Take the time as a group to read the whole story of “David & Goliath” in
1Samuel 17
- As it is being read, highlight/circle/underline a verse or verses that
stand out to you

O - Observations

Discuss what you read as a group. Use these questions to help you along.

1. Why do you think the Israelites let Goliath set the terms of how the challenge would work? What could they have done instead?

2. What was it about Goliath or the situation that paralyzed the Israelites?

3. How would you describe David in what you read? What was it about him that allowed him to have a completely different perspective?

A - Apply

4. As a group take some time to describe a “giant” you are facing right now. Draw your giant, what are words that you would use to describe him that make him such a giant to you.

5. Is this a new giant? or a giant you thought was slain but is back?

6. Has the Lord given you opportunity to practice on smaller things (lions, bears) to prepare you for this giant?

7. Is your giant setting the terms for you right now? What is the Spirit saying to you about this and about what your Heavenly Father wants you to know today.

P - Prayer

Pray for one another in two’s or three’s. Philippians 4:5 says, “The Lord is near.” 1 Samuel reminds us that the battle is the Lord’s! Pray with faith and with thankfulness for GOD’s might against your giants.
