Passage: 1 Samuel 1:1–1:25
As we begin our new sermon series for 2018, we want to be mindful of our theme which is "Gospel Glory: Daily Displaying God's Majesty". Our core values are worship, connect, and serve and for this calendar year we want to focus on the first of those as we look at the life of David. Thus, while this is a systematic walk through 1 and 2 Samuel, we begin our series in 1 Samuel chapter 12. In chapter 12 of 1 Samuel we find Samuel's final address to the nation at a time of transition between the judges and the rule of the kings. As the last judge and the one tasked with anointing the first king, Samuel recounts the covenant faithfulness of God and draws us in to worship Him ever more. Listen as we see yet again the fickle and sinful nature of our hearts and the incredible love and grace of God.
