Perhaps you’ve heard Lord Acton’s famous statement, "Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely.” He followed, “Great men are almost always bad men...But is this true? And what does his statement say about the nature of humankind? What is power and why does a certain type bring corruption? The abuse of power is in the news daily and has led to more pain and death than anything in human relationships. What does redeemed power look like? Is there such a thing?
King David showed the world what it looked like to steward power given by God, or at least how to trust in God’s power for His purposes. David had moral cracks and defects in his life but he was still called a “man after God’s own heart.” What does it look like to leverage God-given power for His glory without losing one’s soul? This series of messages will show us that we’ve all been given power and how we can honor God with it.
