Beginning in 2022, we have been going through the Real Men of the Bible Series:
Abraham (2022) | Joseph (2023) | Joshua (2024) | David (2024)

July 20:
The Passage: 1 Samuel 16:4-7 and 1 Samuel 17:32-37
The Purpose: To understand and embrace the truth that God sees us not in the same way the world sees us, but that He sees us for the state of our hearts.
The Point: Believing that God is willing to use any man that has a heart postured towards Him is a powerful truth. A man whose heart is pursuing God and is convinced that God is with them cannot be defeated. Today, we will learn how we can trust and live in this truth.

August 17:
The Passage: 1 Samuel 17:37-40
The Purpose: To understand that God’s past faithfulness should equip us to serve him powerfully in the present.
The Point: All men want to be used by God, but sometimes the cost seems too high, with too much risk and too much required of us. In this session, we’ll see how David has an opportunity to be used powerfully. Instead of being overwhelmed by the cost or tempted to approach it from a worldly method, he remembers how God has already proven Himself faithful in the past. If we daily remember God’s steadfast love and faithfulness, we will be empowered to serve Him in incredible ways.

September 21:
The Passage: 2 Samuel 11 & 12
The Purpose: To help remind men that we all need a Nathan in our lives.
The Point: Sin always matters. As Christians, we live victorious lives defined by our forgiveness of sins, knowing that when we confess our sins, God, by His amazing grace, is faithful to forgive them. But, as we will examine in this lesson, sin still carries consequences here on Earth. Much more dangerous than that is the matter of unconfessed sin, which may occur if, in our blindness caused by sin, we fail to realize we are in sin and in need of forgiveness. Therefore we, as men of God, have to have a Nathan in our lives and be a Nathan in the lives of others.

October 19:
The Passage: Psalm 51
The Purpose: To understand what true repentance means and how it looks in a man’s life.
The Point: True repentance takes a contrite heart. It’s not enough to be sorry that you got caught doing something you weren’t supposed to be doing. Repentance is acknowledging the filthiness of your sin and turning away from it and toward the Holy God. However, many times a man’s pride becomes a barrier to repentance. In this session, Rick talks about how God led David to authentic repentance and how David’s heart was broken over his sin. When we truly repent, our pride falls away, and our heart breaks, but God restores us and mends our brokenness to become more sanctified followers of Jesus.

November 16:
The Passage: 1 Kings 2:1-4
The Purpose: To understand that the legacy you leave your children should point them to God.
The Point: When your life here on earth is done, what will your family say about you? Will they have been pointed to Christ by how you lived your life, or will they have been shown how to make a lot of money and excel at meaningless activities? In this session, we look at the legacy David leaves and the charge he gives Solomon just before he dies.
