The Urgency of True Repentance

October 8, 2023 Speaker: Brown Peterson Series: 1 Samuel

Passage: 1 Samuel 15:1-3, 1 Samuel 15:7-24

Memory Verse for the Week: 1 Samuel 15:22-23 (ESV)

And Samuel said, “Has the LORD as great delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices, as in obeying the voice of the LORD? Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice, and to listen than the fat of rams. For rebellion is as the sin of divination, and presumption is as iniquity and idolatry. Because you have rejected the word of the LORD, he has also rejected you from being king.”

1. Worship God, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, for being our God and our King who rules, sustains, protects and governs us.

2. Where can you confess the sin of Saul in your life? What are the seeds of his downfall that you see in yourself?

3. Marvel and rejoice in the work of Jesus who is our hope of revival and renewal in the Church and in our lives.

4. Pray for the world and the Church around the world, specifically that her members and her ministers would be faithful to God’s call, obedient to his word,  and stand firm in the Lord.

5. Ask for the Holy Spirit’s help to root out the sins that lead to death. Ask God to help you put those things to death and to surround you with people who can walk faithfully alongside you.
