1 Samuel 26 | Living By Faith

Let’s talk about faith.

When faith is depicted as one dimensional, a cop-out, or an excuse, we are simply not talking about faith. Faith is multidimensional not one-dimensional. It is both acting and receiving: experiencing God’s greatness and showcasing His grace. In this Sunday’s scripture focus, we see Saul regress from his recent commitment and David respond with faith rather than fury. As the chapter unfolds, we are shown what it means to live by faith rather than act impulsively or impatiently. Together, we’ll discover that multidimensional faith enables our lives to turn into a showcase of God’s grace.
