I Samuel Lesson 3: “Worthy!”
Motivation: Renewal must begin with a realization of sin and one’s need for God (Ps. 51:3-4). In Israel’s history, this often began with a military defeat. Following this realization of need, true repentance is often accompanied by a genuine sacrifice of worship (Ps. 51:7-10). The realization that God is one’s top priority must be the ultimate result. (Matt. 6:33)
I Samuel Lesson 2: “Called”
Lesson: 1 Samuel 3:1-10, 17-21Motivation: In this passage we see a great contrast between the sham services of Eli’s sons with the holy call of Samuel. It’s very helpful for us in Christian service to learn from the mistakes of others rather than to live with our own mistakes.
I Samuel Lesson 1: “Answered!”
Lesson: 1 Samuel 1:10-18, 26-28Motivation: 1 Samuel claims no authorship; rabbinical tradition ascribes it to Samuel with supplementary portions possibly being added by the prophets Gad and Nathan following Samuel’s death (25:1). The book covers the period from 1120 B.C. (Samuel’s birth) to 1010 B. C. (final days of Saul’s reign). This is a transitional book closing the period of Judges and introducing the monarchy.
