Sermon Notes

Date: 10.20.19
Title: "Passion is Undignified."


2 Samuel‬ ‭6:16-23‬ ‭ESV‬‬
“As the ark of the Lord came into the city of David, Michal the daughter of Saul looked out of the window and saw King David leaping and dancing before the Lord, and she despised him in her heart. And they brought in the ark of the Lord and set it in its place, inside the tent that David had pitched for it. And David offered burnt offerings and peace offerings before the Lord. And when David had finished offering the burnt offerings and the peace offerings, he blessed the people in the name of the Lord of hosts and distributed among all the people, the whole multitude of Israel, both men and women, a cake of bread, a portion of meat, and a cake of raisins to each one. Then all the people departed, each to his house. And David returned to bless his household. But Michal the daughter of Saul came out to meet David and said, "How the king of Israel honored himself today, uncovering himself today before the eyes of his servants' female servants, as one of the vulgar fellows shamelessly uncovers himself!" And David said to Michal, "It was before the Lord, who chose me above your father and above all his house, to appoint me as prince over Israel, the people of the Lord —and I will celebrate before the Lord. I will make myself yet more contemptible than this, and I will be abased in your eyes. But by the female servants of whom you have spoken, by them I shall be held in honor." And Michal the daughter of Saul had no child to the day of her death.”

2 Samuel‬ ‭6:22‬a NIV‬‬
“I will become even more undignified than this, and I will be humiliated in my own eyes.

‭Undignified: appearing foolish and unseemly; lacking in dignity.

2 Samuel‬ ‭6:20-22‬ ‭MSG‬‬
David replied to Michal, “In GOD ’s presence I’ll dance all I want!... Oh yes, I’ll dance to GOD ’s glory—more recklessly even than this. And as far as I’m concerned... I’ll gladly look like a fool...

‭‭
Big question: Is there anything you are not willing to do in regards to your worship of God?

Quote: “Limited worship ALWAYS reveals a limited view of God.”


John‬ ‭3:30-36‬ ‭ESV‬‬
“He must increase, but I must decrease." He who comes from above is above all. He who is of the earth belongs to the earth and speaks in an earthly way. He who comes from heaven is above all. He bears witness to what he has seen and heard, yet no one receives his testimony. Whoever receives his testimony sets his seal to this, that God is true. For he whom God has sent utters the words of God, for he gives the Spirit without measure. The Father loves the Son and has given all things into his hand. Whoever believes in the Son has eternal life; whoever does not obey the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of God remains on him.”

When our priority is to maintain dignity:
* Restrained Worship
* Partial surrender 
* Delayed obedience 
* Unless forgiveness 
* “Potted Plant” faithfulness 
* Spotlight Servanthood
* Pain-free Giving
