My 3/31/19AM sermon, A New Hope (1 Samuel 11), is now online. The sermon continued our work in the books of 1 and 2 Samuel, specifically dealing with some chapters showcasing the rise of Saul.
The sermon dug into what might be the one shining moment in Saul’s kingship. The Ammonites attack and upon hearing it, the Spirit rushes upon Saul and enables him to lead the nation to defeat the enemy. The passage ended with Samuel “renewing the kingdom” at Gilgal.
This story helped to show how we can respond when our enemies pridefully gloat over us, how the Spirit encourages us, and leads us to focus on God. I hope it encourages you.
