The term ?peer pressure? is often associated with the social life of teenagers. But in 1 Samuel chapter 8, we learn that entire nations can be influenced by a desire to be like those around them. Today, we?ll find out how Israel responds to this geo-political peer pressure and how that response impacts their covenant with God.

What do eye color, height and skin tone have in common? They?re all hereditary characteristics that are passed down through generations. While certain physical aspects of a person?s appearance are genetic transfers, the grace of God and the spiritual state of the individual are not. Today we?ll find Israel facing an uncertain future and struggling, once again, to trust God. The scene may be new, but the crisis is an old one?

You may not work in the construction industry, but if you?re a Christian, you?re called to partake in a demolition project that has spanned the history of human existence. Believers must be in the business of tearing down idols ? and that includes anything that presents itself as a rival to God. We so badly want control over our own lives, but as we listen to Liam today, he?ll remind us why total desperation is sometimes the very best place to be?

Fruits and vegetables go in and out of season and clothing and accessories go in and out of style. But did you know that the Word of God also has an ?in season?? And in 1 Samuel chapter 7, the Israelites prepare for the fulfillment of God?s Word after 20 years of waiting!

We may fool ourselves into thinking that God can share space on the throne of our hearts, but that is simply not His mode of operation. The Bible describes him as a jealous God and we see throughout Scripture that He is not afraid to put his power on display and demand our full allegiance. The Philistines were pagans, but even they knew the reality of God?s power. If there?s one thing we can learn from their example, it is that we should never take the presence of God lightly?

We may imagine God?s wrath raining down in the form of lightning and plagues, but most often, judgment comes through the natural consequences of our own actions. The Philistines found this out the hard way and we?ll read all about it in 1 Samuel chapter 6. How can a person repay a debt they can?t assess to a God that they don?t know? That?s the ultimate question faced by all unbelievers, including the Philistine?s of Samuel?s day?

Christians like to place blame on secular education and popular culture, but the church itself is often hostile toward God and disobedient to his Word. Take for example, the Israelites, who tried, quite literally, to put God in a box. Whether the idols in our lives are physical statues or are simply priorities that we place before God, they all share one common trait: they are given life by the people who worship them?

Last week we learned that the Israelites took the Ark of the Covenant into battle to face the Philistines. Today, we?ll discover who came out on top and we?ll learn how one woman taught more theology in her death than her husband, who was a priest, taught in his entire lifetime. Following God is pretty simple. Because when it comes down to it, there?s no magical solution or quick fix that can replace humble obedience?

For centuries, humans have been looking for ways to control and manipulate God. We see examples in Scripture of everything from the building of a tower to the misuse of religious icons. But as much as we might scheme and plot, the reality is that we can never force God?s hand to accommodate our own agenda. Ritual without meaning is worthless and a religious symbol without God?s power is nothing more than a physical object. The Israelites had to find that out the hard way?

Samuel fulfilled the duties of both judge and prophet and in doing so, literally bridged the gap between two eras of Israel?s history. His life pointed toward the coming of one who would ultimately make the jobs of judge and prophet obsolete. As we open to 1 Samuel chapter 3, we?ll witness God?s decision to open up the lines of communication with his people after years of withholding his word.
