The Life of Samuel - Week 3

Pastor Marshall Ochs | August 18, 2019

In this message, Pastor Marshall teaches from 1 Samuel 11-15. Israel had a new king named Saul. This new king had a few outward victories, but his heart was a failure. Saul had an issue obeying God. Samuel would give specific instructions to Saul on how to obey God, and Saul would ignore them or obey only half of the commands. Over time, this eroded the character of God in the eyes of Israel and permitted everyone to ignore His commandments. The life of Saul reminds us that God defines obedience, and we are ambassadors of His kingdom and character.
