City South Talk 4 | A Sinning King | Still Waiting for the True King | 2 Samuel 11:1-27

Get your heart sorted with God. Stop the destructive pretending and have your hands cleaned.
Pursue a life of intimacy with God. Cultivate friendships that help
you listen to God. Put your hands towards bringing blessing.
King David repeats the Fall- he sees, he desires, he takes, he covers it up. We need a king who won’t take life for himself but will give life for others.
We know deep down there’s a problem with us that needs fixing. Our attempts to deal with sin outside of Jesus will only escalate sin bringing anxiety and chaos rather than peace and rest.

Talk 3 | A Forever King | Still Waiting for the True King | 2 Samuel 7:1-29

David desires to build a house of God and secure his peace and blessing, but God reminds him that he is one who builds things that last. God promises that his son will build his house and that God himself will make a kingdom that will last forever.

We all want to build something that lasts. David is experiencing something he wants to last forever, but only what is built by God, through Jesus, truly lasts forever.

What are the small kingdoms that you are building in your life? Realise that the frustration you feel in life is because of the futility of these small kingdoms. Recognise that we try to establish our own security and significance somewhere.

Stop trying to establish your own security and significance like David and let God blow your mind with his extraordinarily bigger plan.

We all long for rest. Israel momentarily experiences this rest and rejoicing, but we can only experience lasting satisfaction of this longing through Jesus.
Hands Statement:FIRST Steps: Stop seeking joy and rest in distractions, temporary things, and false gods.

Practicing true rest is letting God be God. Stop trying to sign God up to build and bless your kingdom. Rest in Jesus by enjoying God’s presence, on his terms.

This is Living | Talk 4 | Living Sacrifice

The dying world wants to shape us in ways that bring death. Our view of God’s mercy at the cross shapes us in ways that give life. The first step is to see God’s mercy in Jesus. Take your place on the altar with us as part of the living sacrifice which is a living church.
