Dear Church Family,
Last Sunday we saw that twenty years after the events of 1 Sam. 6 Israel finally comes to repent before God. Samuel calls them to put away their gods and foreign idols and to turn with all there hearts to God. In that moment the Philistines attack and the Israelites make a plea for God’s help. Samuel offers a sacrifice to God and the Lord defeats the Philistines and scatters them from Israel. As we look at this account we are reminded of the goodness of Christ, as we were in our most desperate moments God offered a sacrifice on our behalf, his only son, that saved us from destruction. What a great picture of the gospel we have in 1 Sam 7. You can check out the sermon here.
