A reminder for today
But Samuel, though he was only a boy, served the LORD. He wore a linen garment like that of a priest. Meanwhile, the boy Samuel grew taller and grew in favour with the LORD and with the people. (1 Samuel 2:18 and 24)
Eli’s son’s Hophni and Phinehas were terrible people and sinned against the Lord, while Samuel grew up serving God. It says here in 1 Samuel 2 that Samuel served the Lord and grew in favour with the Lord.
My dear friend, how do you serve the Lord? Do you grow in favour with the Lord or do you still sin against the Lord. We know that Hophni and Phinehas’s lives ended in disaster while Samuel grew up to be a great prophet. When we look at serving the Lord there is two things that I would like to remind you to do today. When we serve the Lord, we can only serve Him and no other. The Lord must have and own the first place in our hearts. And second to this is that we must continue to grow our relationship with God and dedicate our lives in living it according to His Word and guidance.
Come with me today so that we renew our dedication to the Lord and as we grow taller in our spiritual life, let us also grow in favour with the Lord as we continue to do His will and follow His Word.
A life lived for Jesus is a life worth living. You must love the LORD your God with all your heart, all your soul, all your strength, and all your mind. (Luke 27)
Have an awesome day dear friend of Jesus.
