God Speaks, Samuel Hears

Scripture: 1 Samuel 3:1-21

Topics: Faithful, Intimacy

In 1 Samuel 3, we are left in the wake of Eli’s sons’ wicked deeds as their family of priests does not faithfully stand in the gap between God and people. Meanwhile, God in his mercy comes to Samuel to appoint him as the one who will bridge that gap so that people can truly experience the Word of the Lord. Ultimately, God will send Jesus as the final and perfect priest to be the bridge for us to the Father forever. And this isn’t just any relationship we can have with God—it is a personal, experiential relationship with our Creator who changes everything.
