Text: I Samuel 15
– The moral of the story is that leaders who live in discord with the truth to be in harmony with the people will soon find themselves rejected by both.
– Whenever the institution of God begins to go blind, God raises up a voice that is in sync with his Word.
– God does not delight in judgment any more than Jesus delighted in being crucified – when God placed himself under his own judgment of human sinfulness, so that he could restore human life.
Saul’s Three Flat Notes
- Ch. 13 – He was out of tune with God’s sovereignty.
- Ch. 14 – He was out of tune with God’s promises.
- Ch. 15 – He was out of tune with God’s judgments.
But all because he was out of tune with the heart of worship.
– He worshiped the voices that sang his praise.
– Grace has always been deeply embedded in the heart of God.
– “The Bible is the written word of God, and because it is written it is confined and limited by the necessities of ink and paper and leather. The voice of God, however, is alive and free as the sovereign God is free.” – A.W. Tozer
– The voice of truth is never on my side, but it is always calling me to its side.
– “If only there were evil people somewhere insidiously committing evil deeds, and it were necessary only to separate them from the rest of us and destroy them. But the line dividing good and evil cuts straight through the heart of every man.” – Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn
