Themes from David’s Life

Monday, July 30th, 2007

At Hope Chapel, we’ve been doing a sermon series since January on the life of David, using Eugene Peterson’s Leap Over A Wall: Earthy Spirituality for Everyday Christians. One of the first sermons was “Themes From David’s Life”, preached by David Taylor. He preached again today, and started off with a reminder of the themes. So, I decided to share them, using my notes from February:

  1. In the middle of all the parts of our lives, we must keep praying and praising.
  2. God uses all the stuff of your life to form you in His image.
  3. Fear makes you stupid. So does sin.
  4. The matter of the heart matters most.
  5. The Lord is sovereign over all your life, at all times, in all things.

D. A. Carson Audio

D. A. Carson is a professor of the New Testament at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School, and is one of my favorite preachers. Another blogger has collected links to many of his lectures & sermons here:
D. A. Carson Audio sermons and lectures.

There’s something about his style that warms my heart–something about his language, his heart, his passion. I appreciate his strong exegesis, his broad scholarly awareness, his pastoral focus.

His various lectures on the Emerging Church are an informative & helpful contribution to that broad conversation. His sermons on the way the book of Hebrews quotes the Old Testament is meaty. His two sermons on evil and suffering are touching.

Enjoy!
