  • When God Speaks, Who Listens?

    Contributed by Scott Hippler on Feb 11, 2001
    based on 116 ratings

    Do we listen as God speaks, Do we even know what He sounds like?

    When God Speaks, Who Listens? 1 Samuel 3:1-10 Professional athletes, as a group, are not noted for their oratory skills – off the playing field, that is. From what I understand, several of them are highly efficient when it comes to getting under the skin of their opponents by the use of verbal more

  • What Are You Hiding Behind?

    Contributed by Royce Hendry on Feb 4, 2002
    based on 127 ratings

    Here are two of the most popular things lost people hide behind while professing to be a Christian.

    I Samuel 4:1-11 WHAT ARE YOU HIDING BEHIND? (Read Judges 21:25/ I Samuel 3:1) INTRO: Let me share with you a couple of troubling headlines from a very popular and trustworthy news source. One deals with a cult. A man by the name of Mike stole nearly $150,000 from his mother. Not knowing who the more

  • God's Voice: Hearing, Knowing And Finding It

    Contributed by Eloy Gonzalez on Jan 17, 2003
    based on 197 ratings

    Epiphany 2: Does God still speak with us today? How can we tell if what we hear is God’s voice? How do we position ourselves to better hear the Word of God? This message attempts to answer these questions.

    Here are three questions that I want to answer in this message: 1) Does God really speak to people? 2) If so, how do we know that it is God Who is talking? And finally, 3) How do we position ourselves to better hear the voice of God? In order to answer these questions, we’re going to look at Samuel more

  • The Call Of Samuel And The Fall Of Eli Series

    Contributed by Chris Appleby on Jan 19, 2003
    based on 134 ratings

    The Priesthood has failed so God raises up a prophet to bring his word to his people. God uses the circumstances of Hannah to bring about his plan.

    I doubt that Samuel realised just what was in store for him as he began his service of God in the Temple with Eli. No doubt it began as a fairly simple routine of lessons and chores with plenty of time for games. As a young child he would have been looked after by the many people who worked and more

    Discovering what it means to serve God is best illustrated by examining the commitment of those who do serve, like Samuel.

  • Softening The Blow Series

    Contributed by Doug Johnston on Aug 22, 2001
    based on 20 ratings

    Since we may minister to people who are hearing bad news, examining Samuel’s heart while he acts in this way provides keys we can remember if we too need to serve in this uncomfortable way.

    Softening the Blow Selections from 1 Samuel Introduction Part of Samuel’s ministry was working with people who were in difficult or unusual circumstances. With His Own Family -His mother (2:18-19) Tell Bad News from God -Eli (3:11-14, 17-18) -King Saul (13:11-14; 15:24-31) Serve with those more

  • For The Sake Of The Call

    Contributed by David Washburn on May 5, 2002
    based on 227 ratings

    We learn from ten-year old Samuel the importance of being attentive and obedient to God’s call, for we never know where it might lead

    This morning’s scripture passage is one of my favorites, as it tells the story of Samuel’s call into the ministry, but when we consider the overall context surrounding this story of Samuel’s calling, we gain a much richer meaning. This is true for any biblical passage. The meaning and way in which more

  • When God Called Samuel

    Contributed by John Williams Iii on Jan 13, 2003
    based on 91 ratings

    Samuel’s call was timely because the priesthood of Eli’s family line had been defiled and compromised by his sons Hophni and Phineas.

    WHEN GOD CALLED SAMUEL Text: First Samuel 3:1-10 We have all heard of a thing called tough love. Tough love is when one confronts another with unyielding consequences. Tough love does not yield to the ones who want to bend the rules. Tough love is tough because it reminds the ones or the more
