28.30: 2 Samuel 17 and 18: A Strategy that Appeals to #Pride Leads to Death

Have you ever noticed in a movie when the camera focuses in on a certain object that gets left behind? That means that object is going to play a major role in the story down the line. Remember back in 2 Samuel 14, the description of the length of Absalom’s hair? You may have thought, what does that have to do with anything? Believe it or not, it comes into play in these next chapters. Now, I have a feeling his hair wasn’t straight as it is depicted in the drawing at the top, from Free Bible Images. I think it was curlier and bushier. In any rate, as we will see, a strategy that appeals to pride, leads to death. Let’s dig in….

It’s time to GET RIGHT WITH GOD!

Are you ready to meet God today? You may just meet God today!

If you want to reap all the benefits of salvation including the 1-way, non-stop ticket to Heaven then…

Believe. Repent. Be Baptized. Receive the Holy Spirit.

Pray this prayer humbly and wholeheartedly…

“Dear Lord Jesus, I know I am a sinner. I believe You died for my sins and rose from the dead. Please forgive me. Right now, I turn from my sins and open the door of my heart and my life to you. I confess You as my personal Lord and Savior. I surrender my whole life to you and I will follow you for the rest of my life. Thank You, Jesus, for saving me. In Jesus’ name, Amen.”
