The books of 1 and 2 Samuel relay Israel’s transition from being ruled by judges, of whom Samuel was the last, to being led by kings. The people of Israel demanded this change although it didn’t follow God’s desire for the nation (1 Samuel 8-1-9) Samuel was a godly leader who wanted Israel to remember that God was their king and called them to faithfulness to Him. The people, on the other hand, wanted a king like the other nations had. Someone they could look to as their leader. Someone who would lead them in battle. God gave them the desire of their heart and set up Saul as the first king of Israel.

I've been following the news with great angst the last few days (last 2 years) leading into last night. My heart is ripped to shreds for families in Louisiana and Minnesota, for Officers and families in Dallas, and for our nation. It’s tempting to put our head in the sand and ignore it until gets closer to home. But if we’re honest with ourselves, we can’t ignore all...Keep Reading

Since being in Haiti, there have been a myriad of experiences that have taught me much about who God is and the mission he has called us to. One that cannot escape my mind was when I, for the first time, saw local fishermen manually catching fish at the beach. Instantly, I was reminded about the calling of some of Jesus’ disciples-fishermen who did the hard work I was wi...Keep Reading
