I’LL FLY AWAY
PSALMS 55:1-6; I Thess. 4:16-17
[This sermon is a 'rare exception' from before the website began, so the outline / slide preview below will tell you more about the full text and PowerPoint slides. If you have the Complete Collection then you already have this full sermon included.]
In these verses written by David, he is being oppressed by his enemies. He is tired of persecution and wickedness all around him. Thus, in his prayer to God, he says “I wish I could fly away to a place of rest and get away from it all.”
Have you ever felt like that? Well one day we will get away, for we will literally fly away.

Joke—it’s interesting: if a plane crashes today right on the border of the US and Mexico, do you know where they bury the survivors?
You don’t bury survivors!
