1 Samuel 11: Saul Defeats the Ammonites

First Samuel

Sermon Quote of the Week

1 Samuel Chapter 11 isn’t about how cowardly the men of Jabesh-Gilead were, or what a great military strategist Saul was. It isn’t trying to teach us how to battle our own personal Nahashes. It is about the mercy and patience and compassion of God toward a wayward people who didn’t really have the right to expect His help. Sounds familiar, doesn’t it? Not because it’s an allegory, but because it’s just who God is. -Seth
