Prophet Samuel - 4

by Dennis Miller

Even though Samuel was a very effective Judge over Israel, the people of Israel wanted a king “like other nations.” It certainly didn’t make Samuel happy that they were rejecting the Lord as their king, but with the Lord’s guidance, Samuel handed his power to the first king of Israel, Saul. But they way this was done was extremely clever and helped everyone understand the seriousness of their choice. This text, 1 Samuel 12, is not a popular or well-known chapter, but once understood, it helps everyone understand the people are the PROBLEM and God is the SOLUTION. This is our fourth study in the life of the PROPHET SAMUEL.
