The Pastor’s Letter – July 27, 2021 – The Only Remedy for Politics

And the people said unto Samuel, Who is he that said, Shall Saul reign over us? bring the men, that we may put them to death.

1 Samuel 11:12

Dear Church and Friends,

We live in a very contentious time. The political climate is super-heated. However, this is not the first time such conditions existed among men. Just look at the passage I’ve suggested for our reading today and you’ll see a day long ago when the passions of men were politically charged.

The Children of Israel wanted a king and once the Lord saved Jabesh from the Ammonites by Saul’s hand they were certain that anyone who opposed Saul should be eliminated. Sound familiar?

Watch the video today for our devotion in 1 Samuel 11:12-15.
