Don’t Go It Alone

Saul and Samuel stood as a united front.  Together they represent both the physical strength and spiritual strength of the Lord. 

Raise Your Voice in Worship

Samuel notices the look on Saul’s face and answering the unasked questions he states, “You wonder why I’m anointing you and honoring you with my deepest respect, is it not because you are chosen?”  I’ll put it another way, “Do you still not understand that you have been chosen, you are the chosen one”.   

Giving Up Freedom

God told Samuel to give them what they wanted, but before doing so, give them a fair warning of the reality of how things will be.  You see the grass on the other side is looking greener to them, but what they don’t realize is the grass is planted on a septic tank. 

Just Get It Out Of Here

If you were taken captive and placed out in the wilderness, wouldn’t you want those who claim to love you to come and get you and bring you back to where you belong?  No wonder the Lord is so willing to leave the 99 to go get the one that is lost.  He knows what it feels like to not have your loved ones seek you.         

That Dagon Temple

It would be no surprise that placing the ark of God next to this pesky idol was not a good idea, but they did it anyway.  Only after God knocked this idol to the ground twice, breaking off his hands and head, leaving only a torso behind did they start to second guess their decision.
