Re:Verse reading–1 Samuel 9 & 10 (day four)
10:26 – “Saul also went to his house at Gibeah, and the valiant men whose hearts God had touched went with him.”
Saul had been called by God to serve…but he was not alone. God touched the hearts of some valiant men. They followed Saul to serve him and to serve God. There was work to be done in Israel and God began to gather those who would work alongside Saul. It is the same today. God often calls a leader to a task, but He likewise calls those with open hearts to serve beside that leader.
This model is most often seen when God calls a new pastor to a church. Valiant men and women…whose hearts God has touched…join the church and help shoulder the task of reaching a city and the world. They may already be members of the church, but they renew their commitment to reach people and serve. Sound familiar to anyone? Are you ready to get to work?
