1 Samuel 9-12 (The Daily Walk Bible).
Isn’t it amazing to see what lengths and money some people will go to/through in order to be elected to political office? And yet here we have someone appointed by God to be king and he wants to hide from it! In fact, if the Spirit of the Lord hadn’t come upon Him at the right time, would Saul have tried to help out the people of Jabesh-gilead, or not?
Here’s the reminder for us. God has chosen us as his people, and given us certain responsibilities. Are we willing to tell others that God has chosen us through Jesus Christ? Are we willing to live for Him and follow Him in all other areas of our lives? Or are we going to hide among the baggage and hope that He misses our disobedience?!?!
