  Message—An Audible Call, Part 1

On today’s show, Chris begins a three part series on the life of Samuel, the priest, judge and prophet.

 “Samuel is one of the most unique characters in the Bible. Why? Because he held several important ancient Israelite titles. God kept this one man many very busy… he served the Lord as a Priest, a Judge, and Prophet. It’s unusual to see one man occupy so many important positions. Additionally, Samuel served the Lord during a crucial transition in Israel’s history. He is often referred to as one of Israel’s last judges… because he stood on the cusp of Israel transitioning from the Lord being King of Israel and the Judges monitoring Israel’s spiritual pulse, to enthroning a human King to rule over Israel.”

“An Employee and a Witness”

Zvi makes a new friend. A man with a sad and sordid past who is at the end of his life. As he lie on his deathbed he began to cry and said,  “I am unworthy of anyone telling me about God and His salvation.” Zvi told him, “Christ died for sinners, that they may have eternal life. It is up to you to receive the Lord Jesus as your Savior, so that you may have that eternal life. This may be your last opportunity.”
