Samuel was a great leader of God’s people.  When the nation of Israel called for a king, it was the beginning of the end for this nation.  The kings lead God’s people into idolatry, and ultimately, complete destruction.

Lesson One: The Birth of Samuel

The birth of Samuel is a reminder of God’s grace.  Samuel was an answered prayer for God’s people and for Samuel’s mother.  Never think that your prayers don’t matter.  If it matters to you, it matters to God.

Lesson Two: The Dedication of Samuel

Our God keeps his promises. Hannah Spirit wrought response breaks out hearts and makes us proud. This leads us to wonder how her song of praise influenced saint for generations to come.

Lesson Three: The House of Eli

Our God is serious about worship.  The House of Eli had become a disgrace in the eyes of God’s people.  Do not be deceived; God cannot be mocked.

Lesson Four: Speak, O Lord

“Speak, O Lord, for you servant is listening.” With these words the church has submitted to the Word of the Lord for thousands of years. This week we listen to our God with young Samuel.

Lesson Five: The Glory Has Departed

It’s hard to watch, but God is starting to keep his dreadful promise against the house of Eli.  How bad was the disaster?  Is the Ark of the Covenant a lucky rabbit’s foot?  We’ll find out in this lesson.

Lesson Six: Raiders of the Lost Ark

It was a sign of just how far Israel had sunk when God’s people used the Ark of the Covenant as a good luck charm.  That doesn’t mean God can’t use this as an opportunity to punish his enemies.

Lesson Seven: Samuel the Judge

What did an Old Testament Judge do?  How did a Judge lead God’s people?  You have a great example in Samuel in these verses.  The Judge didn’t need to be a military leader, just God fearing.

Lesson Eight: Israel Asks for a King

Be careful what you wish for, you might just get it.  When Samuel’s sons become corrupt Israel decides that they are ready for a change.  They want a king.

Lesson Nine: Samuel Anoints Saul

Saul was anointed as the first king of Israel.  What could go wrong?  We’ll find out this morning as we dig into 1 Samuel 9.

Lesson Ten: Saul Made King

Saul is officially the first King of Israel.  So why is he hiding in the baggage?  Why did he think he could hide if he was a head taller than everyone else?  In this lesson we’ll see how Israel responds to their first king.
