Transitions are always difficult. The larger the transition the greater the difficulty to be expected. In our chapters today, the nation of Israel was facing a major transition as King David neared the end of his earthly pilgrimage.

Here’s what I see in today’s chapters:

II Samuel chapter 24 sermon topics/ titles:

1. When  God causes His King To Harm the Nation: II Sam. 24:1-10

2. Falling Into God’s Hands: II SAm. 24: 11-19

3.  Making the Sacrifice Cost: II Sam. 24: 24,25

I Kings chapter 1 sermon topics/ titles:

1.  The Repayment Of a Spoiled Child: I Kings 1:1-7

2.  Priest Vs. Prophet: I Kings 1: 7-49

3.  Calming the Transition Drama: I Kings 1: 50-53

What is the most difficult transition you have ever been through?

What do you see in these chapters?

  1. “Falling Into God’s Hands” and “Making the Sacrifice Cost” I would love to hear you preach on these two. Here’s what I saw.
    II Samuel 24
    1. Don’t you know the numbers don’t matter? II Sam 24:1-9
    2. When the affliction is directly linked to your actions. II Sam 24:10-17
    3. Only I can pay this price! II Sam 24:24
    1 Kings 1
    1. A promise that was made long ago. 1 Kings 1:17-30
    2. My Son will reign now! 1 Kings 1:33-37
    3. Your King has been chosen. 1 Kings 1:43-48

  2. Oh boy .. .transitions certainly are stretching exercises! Ones that were particularly big to me, were leaving the “work force” .. .and then again when we brought Aubrey home to school, out of public school. I loved the sound of Calming the Transition Drama! God bless you!

  3. >> “What is the most difficult transition you have ever been through?”
    Leaving the extremely involved and time consuming voluntary work in National children’s and youth ministry. It was necessary but I went to pieces, going from long, long hours of enjoyable work to nothing. I was ’empty’.

    Praise God, He gave me a new ministry, but those previous decades remain the highlight of my life and of my total dependence on the living, giving God.
