Is God only interested in the bold and the strong, the movers and shakers and the type A personalities? What about the small people, the marginalized, and the so called 'walk-ons' in life? Liam Goligher points out a champion for the weak - a champion who regards the humble and rules with justice.
Before David assumed the throne, the kingdom was brimming with greed, war games, murder, power plays, and all manner of nefarious acts. Despite it all, God's purpose for His Kingdom could not be stopped. Liam Goligher concludes Israel’s 'civil war' story.
Ultimately there is only one King, and He is God Himself. All the other “little people” who occupy offices, do so by His permission. Abner, commander of Saul’s army, was one of these so-called “little people.” Next time on No Falling Word, Liam Goligher discusses Abner - a power broker dealing in false strength.
How does one become 'more human'? Or find real joy that lasts forever? Next time on No Falling Word, Liam Goligher uses two royal invitations, one from the earthly kingdom of David, and another from the heavenly kingdom of Jesus, to help us understand what we were made for!
David was a forerunner of Christ, and the great hallmark of both their lives was obedience to the will of God. Next time on No Falling Word, Liam Goligher helps us make connections between the colossal stories of David and Jesus, and the 'little stories' of our own lives today.
Grief is a powerful emotion; sometimes it lasts for a lifetime. We often need our poets and songwriters to help us put words and structure to our grief. Next time on No Falling Word, Liam Goligher draws structured sorrow from a lament, written by King David, for the mighty that have fallen.
Have you ever experienced a sudden reversal of emotions? Maybe things were looking bleak and you were surprised with good news - or the other way around. Next time on No Falling Word, Liam Goligher tells the story of a day in the life of David. A day that begins with a victory dance and quickly turns to anguish when the news arrives that the mighty have fallen.
Death is unavoidable - it comes to everyone. Of course this was true for Saul, Israel's first king; he died a miserable death on a dark day. Yet the death of Israel's first king points us forward a thousand years to the death of Israel's final and forever King - Jesus. Next time on No Falling Word, Liam Goligher will preach "The King is Dead," and still we will say "Long live the King!"
William Cowper, poet and hymn writer, wrote: "Sometimes a light surprises the Christian while he sings; It is the Lord, who rises with healing in His wings; When comforts are declining, He grants the soul again; A season of clear shining, to cheer it after rain." Next time on No Falling Word, Liam Goligher discusses these happy surprises and "seasons of clear shining" that accompany the Christian life... once in a while.
The Christian life is not a theoretical science. Practically, it can be messy, and things can get complicated. This was certainly true of David's life when he was living among the Philistines. Next time on No Falling Word with Liam Goligher, we'll bite our nails when David finds himself on the horns of a dilemma.
