    King Saul’s depression, caused by disobedience to God, was relieved as he came to terms with himself and asked David to play his harp - a parable of what Jesus can do for us.

    A century ago when biographies of Christian men were written it was the accepted policy not to probe too deeply into their lives. It was felt that it wasn’t to the glory of God that a man whom God had used mightily in his service should have weaknesses or failings (except, of course, before ...read more

    Patrick O’Boyle tells about an incident in Hyde Park, a large public park in London, England, famous for its soapbox orators. He recalls one particular day, back in the 1940’s, when Frank Sheed, a Christian author and publisher was addressing the crowd in the “Speakers’ Corner.” He writes: “Sheed ...read more

    Have you see the bumper sticker that says, “I took an IQ test and the results were negative”? Sometimes very intelligent people can get very negative results on their IQ tests. For instance, people are paid a lot of money to write the things that appear on the packages and products we buy. But a ...read more

    Contributed by Chris Appleby on Apr 27, 2003
    based on 9 ratings
     | 5,039 views

    In the short term Saul’s reign was a failure. But in the longer term God had a king in mind for Israel, who, through his death and resurrection, would bring the salvation, the leadership, the rule that the nation needed and who, in fact, would extend that

    Well, today we come to the end of the history of Saul, Israel’s first king. The question that faces us as we think about the life of Saul, is just how much of a failure was it? And what’s more, did God make a mistake in making him king? In fact, should God have refused the Israelites request for a ...read more

  • The Awakening Series

    Contributed by Doug Johnston on Sep 20, 2001
    based on 43 ratings
     | 2,424 views

    Just as Saul was called out of fear to take his place of leadership, so we too are being called by God to awake from slumber and take our place in these days crying out for leadership.

    Introduction: Saul’s personality was energized when the Spirit of God gripped him. He changed from the cowardly king hiding in the baggage (10:20-22) to a bold man of action (11:5-7). Just as he awoke and took his place, we too must awake to God’s hand on our lives. These difficult days in our ...read more

    based on 36 ratings
     | 7,542 views

    Saul’s foolishness and indifferent attitude toward God’s Word contributed a great deal to his tragic downfall.

    The rise and downfall of Saul convey both practical and spiritual lesson to every man especially to believers who want to glorify God continually through their God-given lives.

  • Wisdom

    Contributed by Robert Leroe on Sep 1, 2004
    based on 38 ratings
     | 4,445 views

    Wisdom comes from God, and is a very real and practical sense of what to do, how to do it, and why it must be done...but wisdom is no guarantee that we’ll act wisely.

    Wisdom II Chronicles 1:1-11, Pastor Bob Leroe, Cliftondale Congregational Church, Saugus, Massachusetts “Ask for whatever you want Me to give you” (vs 7). If God handed you a “blank check”--if you could ask Him for anything and receive it, what would your pray for? I saw a “prayer” on a ...read more

At best, life as we know it, is just a temporary arrangement. We become better stewards of money than time. I ponder, ...read more

    based on 30 ratings
     | 2,895 views

    Saul continues to disobey God, this time by resorting to witchcraft. But God never abandons his people. He has a king prepared who’s a man after his own heart, who’ll restore the fortunes of Israel: David, the shepherd boy, who’s become a great warrior th

    What we find as we read through the books of 1&2 Samuel is a mix of battle narratives and character studies. The action sequences are important because they show how the nation of Israel emerges as a force to be reckoned with, but often it’s in the character studies that we find the points of ...read more

    Pulpit monologue-drama, in which "Solomon" describes how his father’s example influenced him negatively, but his father’s repentance redeemed him.

    “A wise child makes a glad father, but a foolish child is a mother’s grief.” Would you agree? I wrote that, you know. “Train children in the right way, and when old, they will not stray.” Ah, but how do we train them? That is the question. Just by commands? Or do we train them ...read more
