  • The Call Of Samuel And The Fall Of Eli Series

    Contributed by Chris Appleby on Jan 20, 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 ...read more

  • Stewardship: Calling Of Samuel Series

    Contributed by Peter Loughman on Oct 25, 2006
    based on 2 ratings

    Stewardship sermon....kind of, sort of. God calls us to both ministry and stewardship - but expects obedience First joke is not funny, but is a set up for later

    A certain Jewish couple, expecting to the their first child, argued hotly about what name should be given to their little boy. This went on for weeks. Finally, exhausted, they asked their rabbi to intervene. The exasperated mom-to-be said, "I want to name my child after my father, but my ...read more

    based on 82 ratings

    God uses the faithfulness of a woman to begin his work of bringing to fulfilment the promise to make Israel into a great nation.

    Well, the story of the birth of Samuel has everything in it doesn’t it? It’d make a decent plot for a soap opera. There’s domestic strife. Elkanah lived at a time when it was common for a man to have 2 wives, and all the problems you might imagine arising in such a scenario happened. One wife, ...read more
