Life on the Run, Part 2

Preached By: Chad Williams
Text: 1 Samuel 21:1-9




  • Was there anything that stuck with you from this sermon? Anything particularly interesting or challenging? 

Part 1: Sin’s Deception

  • David's sin was exposed by Saul's servant Doeg. When has God used situations or circumstances to expose your sin? What did you learn from that experience?
  • Why did Pastor Chad highlight the Tamarisk Tree? How does that tree paint a picture of God's faithfulness through his future promises? 
  • In order to trust God with the future, we have to reflect on His faithfulness to us in the past. How could you make remembering God’s past faithfulness a more consistent part of your daily life?

Part 2: Sin’s Destruction

  • What is the "cost" or the "wages" of sin according to scripture? (i.e. Romans 6:23)
  • When facing unfortunate circumstances or situations, why is it important that we consider the hand our sins may have played in them?
  • Why is it important to remember that being friends of Jesus makes us enemies of the world?

Part 3: The Resurrected King’s Protection

  • Reread 1 Sam 22:1-5, How does David's dwelling in a cave become a picture of death and resurrection?  
  • What is the significance of who lived with David in the cave in vs. 2? What kind of people do Jesus call to be his?
  • David promises safety 


Takes some intentional time to pray as a group. 
  • Specific prayer needs among the group members. 
  • Pray for our church as a whole.
  • Pray for the church leadership.
  • Pray for our nation as we approach election day.
