  • Throughout time, the story of David and Goliath has been taught in Sunday School classes and proclaimed in sermons. Often, the one teaching or preaching has charged the listeners to be like David by facing one’s fears and overcome them in victory. The problem is that this passage is not about a scared shepherd boy facing the military giant with fear and trembling, rather it is a story that depicts a shepherd boy whose faith in God is so great that fear of Goliath does not exist.

  • The Holy Spirit has been described as “God in the heart of the Christian.” When Jesus told His disciples that He was going back to heaven, He said He would send someone to dwell in them. So the Holy Spirit came to live in the Christian’s heart.

    In the Old Testament we find many scriptures that tell us of the Spirit of God coming upon individuals for certain tasks and there are occasions of this in New Testament times. But then came pentecost and the Holy Spirit dwelt within believers and filled them with power.
