1st Samuel – A Stark Contrast: Jonathan and Saul Part 2

In our second part of the chapter, we examine [esvignore]1 Samuel 14:24-52[/esvignore] and find that Saul continues his descent into irrationality as a result of sin. His mind is going the way of the lost, and he is the chief trouble in Israel. We draw from this chapter a lesson on idolatry, and examine Saul as a warning to God’s people to keep things and people out of the place where God alone should occupy. We use examples of possible idols that strike close to our own church: home education, family integration and reformed theology. Can these good things become idols? Indeed.

Our public reading was [esvignore]2 Corinthians 4[/esvignore], and our benediction was [esvignore]Numbers 6:24-26[/esvignore]
