Stone's Hill Community Church
More is written about the life of David than any other human character in the Bible. He’s mentioned a thousand times in the Bible. What all can we say about him on the front end? Shepherd, fugitive, politician, king, poet, musician, prophet, warrior, friend, lover, father, sinner. He’s David, Jesse’s youngest son, the youngest of seven brothers, the family runt. Youthful shepherd of Bethlehem; and ironically a giant-slayer. Teenage king-elect. Composer of Psalms. King Saul’s personal musician. Jonathan’s closest friend. He rose from a hunted fugitive to king of Israel. And he fell from champion in battle to aged and troubled monarch. David – a man of glorious triumph, yet great tragedy. Uniquely gifted, but human to the core; strong in battle, but weak at home. Welcome to Stone's Hill and the King David series!

We welcome you to Stone's Hill today!

A typical Stone's Hill service has music (feel free to sing out); some announcements (things that are upcoming that you can be a part of); a message out of the Bible (God speaks to us through his Word); and an opportunity for you to respond to the message (either immediately in the case of a decision that needs to be made OR in the future as you live out the message in your life.)

So relax and enjoy your morning! We're so glad you are here!
Four Steps To Doing What You Thought You’d Never Do

Neglecting our duty. When we’re not doing what we should be doing, it makes us unhappy and vulnerable.

Indulging our eyes. God’s provisions aren’t enough, so I’ll focus on something else.

Betraying our spouses. We begin taking our relational, emotional, sexual energy to other sources or people.

Hiding our sin. Cover it all up. But it will take its toll and the price will leave you broken.

You are those four steps away from doing what you think you would never do.

The Core Issue
2 Sam. 11:27“…the thing David had done displeased the Lord.”

What thing? Behind the treachery, the lying, the adultery, the murder, the cover-up, was a greater thing. What was this thing?

Two words: "Playing God." God says: “David, Yeah you’re a king. But you don’t get to define what is right and wrong. You don’t get to send people where you want. You don’t get to take whatever or whomever you so desire.”

That’s why later, when David repents, he’ll say things like “Against you only have I sinned.” He’s not denying the hurt he’s caused others; he finally sees the root – “I’ve played God.”

Question: "Are you playing God?"
