David: David's Fall

Back to Message Archive

“But the thing that David had done DISPLEASED the Lord.” -2 Samuel 11:27


 God wants to set us up for SUCCESS, not FAILURE.



“Therefore let anyone who thinks that he stands take heed lest he fall.”

                                                                                                                                             -1 Cor. 10:12


Sin: Is it FALL or FAIL?


When a SHEPHERD becomes a KING

  • Lead SERVANT
  • Shaper of CULTURE
  • Spiritual LEADER


The cautionary tale: If it can happen to DAVID, it can happen to ME!

  1. THOUGHTS become WORDS become DEEDS




  1. PRIDE is often the ROOT when sin is the FRUIT


  1. Satan specializes in making PRIVATE become PUBLIC



“He fell today; I may fall tomorrow.” -Bernard of Clairvaux
