Evening Sermon Series

1 Samuel Sermon SeriesIt was a crucial time in their history. God’s people had no king and everyone did whatever they thought was right (Judges 21:25). God had been silent for many years, but now he was going to break in and teach them about who was really to lead them.

It’s a lesson we need to learn as well. By default, we lead ourselves by whatever we think best. Usually based upon our desires, preferences, impulses or other things. But the one who should lead us is God’s Son, who knows the beginning from the end and is establishing his rule over all things. Surely he’s a better leader for us that to simply lead ourselves.
