Re:Verse reading – 1 Samuel 13:1-14
In our 1 Samuel passage, we see the end of Saul’s kingdom. He has disobeyed God and his kingdom has been removed. God would have established his kingdom forever, but instead, God sought a man after His own heart to bestow this honor upon.
In John 20, we see the culmination of that promise God will make to David in 1 Samuel 16. David’s pure heart to obey the Lord resulted in a kingdom that would last forever. Jesus was of the house of David and His resurrection ushered in His eternal kingdom.
For generations…hundreds of years…God’s plan had been unfolding. Now…thousands of years later…it is still unfolding. God has been faithful to His Word. What does it mean to you and to me to have a God who is unchanging…who is eternal…who is faithful and true to His promises? Should our lives reflect His glory to those around us? Could it be said of us that we are after God’s own heart?
