Pastor Bruce Brown

1 Samuel 25:1-39

I.      A Ruthless Response to Abuse (verses 1-13)           

II.    The Rescuing Grace of Wisdom(verses 14-35)

III.   God’s Righteousness Displayed (verses 36-39)

“No man stands a moment longer than divine grace upholds him. The strongest are weak as water immediately the power of the Spirit is withdrawn; the most mature and experienced Christian acts foolishly the moment he be left to himself; none of us has any reserve strength or wisdom in himself to draw from: our source of sufficiency is all treasured up for us in Christ, as soon as communion with Him be broken, as soon as we cease looking alone to Him, we are helpless.” ~ A.W.
