The Failures of Old Testament Leaders

Category: Full Sermons
In this sermon, we look into the Old Testament and see that most of the good leaders start out well but finish badly, suffering moral failures later in their lives. Their sins all seem to fall into four problem areas: 1. Pride. 2. Choosing personal comfort (over personal sacrifice). 3. Putting family relationships first. 4. Friendship with the world. Knowing about their failures should help us avoid the same outcomes and cause us to appreciate the moral perfection of Christ in the Gospel.
