[display_podcast]Today, we’ll look at the second half of 1 Samuel chapter 2 and its applications to life today.  Right off the bat, we see that young Samuel has been placed under the care of Israel’s priest Eli.  Now, Eli already has a couple of sons, so why is Samuel allowed adoption into Eli’s family?We see the answer to this question in 1 Samuel 2:11-12 11 Then Elkanah returned home to Ramah without Samuel.

Jesus in HD Thumbnail

[display_podcast] They say that confession is good for the soul. So here goes: I confess that I'm feeling terribly conflicted about the passage we discuss in this PODCAST. On the one hand, this is as sober and serious as it gets, Jesus' climax to His signature sermon. Yet on the other hand, I find myself strangely comforted by His words. Comforted because they explain SO MUCH of what we see done today in Jesus' name. You see, Jesus said this at the end of His Sermon on the Mount: 21 “Not eve … [Read more...]

[display_podcast]When I think of "God's Will", I think of something really ominous - like dark clouds, a thundering voice, and a deep command to go to Antarctica and evangelize to the penguins.I think it’s easy to be afraid of God’s will.Still, I think we can get caught up in waiting for God’s “perfect will” to reveal itself.  We long for writing on the wall, an airplane to sketch us a note in the sky, or a text from J.C., Himself.“Where are You, God?  What’s Your plan for my life … [Read more...]

Ouxano 56: 1 Samuel, Chapter 2

Ouxano Thumbnail

[display_podcast]One of the first things you’ll notice when you turn to the second chapter of 1 Samuel is that the first half of the chapter is laid out like a poem and the second looks like a prose or narrative.  This is intentional because the first half is, in fact, a poem; and the second half of the chapter continues the story of Samuel.The first ten verses of 1 Samuel 2 is a song of praise by Hannah, Samuel’s mother.  Now, that strikes me as odd. She has just given up her son to live … [Read more...]
