Passage: 1 Samuel


1 Samuel 17 is all about courage--it might be the most famous courage story in the world: the story of David and Goliath. In this story we see 4 kinds of courage... Saul: he has no courage... Israel: they have disappointed courage... Goliath: he has counterfeit courage... David, who’s got real courage.

Sermon Questions
  1. What is your definition of courage? Why does having the right definition of courage matter?
  2. How have you responded with the bullies of life? What does it mean to have courage when you are overwhelmed by the harsh realities of life?
  3. We ask, “How big is our enemy and do we have anybody big enough to beat him?” David asked, “What does God want to do in this situation?” Why is that a different question to ask?
  4. How does Goliath remind you of Satan? How does Jesus’ life, death, and resurrection defeat Goliath’s threats and accusations?
  5. What does it mean to you to have audacious courage?
