The Matter of the Kingdom, Part 2

Apr 30, 2023    Pastor Paul Edwards

In 1 Samuel 10:17, Samuel calls the people of Israel together at Mizpeh. The last time he called them to Mizpeh (1 Samuel 7), he prayed for them as an intercessor. This time he will preach to them a three point sermon as their prophet/pastor: what God did for them, what the people did in response to what God did for them, and what God will now do in response to the people.

The sermon seems to have Saul under conviction, because when it comes time to introduce him to the people as their first king, he's no where to be found. What is Saul running from?
