Passage: 1 Samuel 17:17–17:24

Goliath Must Fall

Week 5 - Complacency Must Fall


1 Samuel 17:17-24 

17 Now Jesse said to his son David, “Take this ephah[a] of roasted grain and these ten loaves of bread for your brothers and hurry to their camp. 18 Take along these ten cheeses to the commander of their unit. See how your brothers are and bring back some assurance[b] from them. 19 They are with Saul and all the men of Israel in the Valley of Elah, fighting against the Philistines.”

20 Early in the morning David left the flock in the care of a shepherd, loaded up and set out, as Jesse had directed. He reached the camp as the army was going out to its battle positions, shouting the war cry. 21 Israel and the Philistines were drawing up their lines facing each other. 22 David left his things with the keeper of supplies, ran to the battle lines and asked his brothers how they were. 23 As he was talking with them, Goliath, the Philistine champion from Gath, stepped out from his lines and shouted his usual defiance, and David heard it. 24 Whenever the Israelites saw the man, they all fled from him in great fear.

1) Your Faith Needs to Thrive

  Galatians 2:20

20 I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.

  Romans 6:8

Now if we died with Christ, we believe that we will also live with him.

2) Live Jesus

  -> The Point of Life is not to think of me and mine, but to think about You and Yours.

  Philippians 2:5

In your relationships with one another, have the same mindset as Christ Jesus:

  Philippians 2:9-11

Therefore God exalted him to the highest place
    and gave him the name that is above every name,
10 that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow,
    in heaven and on earth and under the earth,
11 and every tongue acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord,
    to the glory of God the Father.

3) Align Yourself to the Will of Jesus

  John 13:34

34 “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another.

  Matthew 20:28

28 just as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.”

4) Live with Urgency
