Freedom to Fight from a Position of Victory

 1 Samuel 17

 How David’s victory for God’s people points us forward to a greater Savior’s victory for believers 

  • A dreaded foe that others could not face (Hebrews 2:14-15)
  • An anointed leader from Bethlehem (Matthew 2:5-6; Acts 10:38)
  • sent by father, scorned by brothers (John 7:3-10; Is. 53:1-6)
  • desire for God’s glory (John 12:28)
  • wife & riches to the victor over the enemy (Revelation 5:12-13, 21:9)
  • God delivered enemy into the savior’s hand (Acts 2:24)
  • Enemy struck on the head by the righteous warrior (Genesis 3:15)
  • Enemy slain with his own weapon (Hebrews 2:14-15)
  • The people fight with confidence from victory (1 Corinthians 15:57-58)
