Presbytery and Samuel
Presbytery went very well. When it began there were 14 member churches - now there are 20, with another 5 set to join next year. We are one of the six new member churches. God is good.
Preached on 1 Samuel 2 this morning - the corruption of Eli's sons. Here's the outline of the text:
I. Prophecy against Eli - vss 1-10
II. Samuels serves and grows - vs 11
III. Eli's sons' corruption - sacrifices - vss 12-17
IV. Samuel's robe and priesthood - vss 18-21
III. Ili's sons' corruption - women - vss 22-25
II. Samuel serves and grows - vs 26
I. Prophecy against Eli - vss 27-36
Samuel is pictured as a faithful priest in contrast with Eli's sons, as Jesus is our faithful high priest (Hebrews 2:17), who intercedes for us before Yahweh.
