Scripture: 1 Samuel 3:1-10

This week Pastor Grant Roe sermon unravels the complexities of Israel’s history, emphasizing the moral decay and spiritual compromise prevalent during the era of Eli and his corrupt priesthood. Through an exploration of 1 Samuel 3:1-10 and 3:19-4:1, Pastor Roe elucidates timeless truths and practical wisdom for navigating today’s tumultuous world. Drawing parallels between Eli’s spiritual deafness and our modern struggles with distraction, Pastor urges listeners to silence the noise to hear God clearly. By positioning ourselves in God’s presence, akin to Samuel’s proximity to the Ark of God, we open ourselves to divine revelation. He looks at the importance of discerning God’s voice amidst the clamor of competing voices, advocating for spiritual mentors to guide us in this endeavor. Finally, he emphasizes how attentive listening empowers us to speak with authority, encouraging us to make God’s voice the loudest in our lives, leading to clarity, conviction, and virtuous action. Hear Pastor Emeritus Steve Dixon as he talks about the significant topic of praying for peace. Drawing from Psalms 122:6-9 he explores the biblical mandate to pray for the peace of Jerusalem, reflecting on its meaning for believers today. Through teachings from Jesus and the apostles, learn about the transformative power of love, forgiveness, and reconciliation in overcoming hatred and violence, and being peacemakers in the world today.
