Sermons on 2 Samuel
2 Samuel 24:17 One lost sheep endangers themselves; a lost shepherd influences and endangers an entire flock. Suffering the influence of a failed leader reminds us all to not lean on our own understanding & deceitful heart. God doesn’t throw vessels away when they break but can use the broken to demonstrate His redemptive power. God demonstrates his power as leaders choose to “repent, turn to God, and demonstrate your repentance by your deeds” (Acts 20:26).
