  Message—An Audible Call, Part 2

Last week we looked at how Samuel was called to be a priest but this week we’re going to look at how God audibly called Samuel to be a judge to Israel.

 “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 being the ones who monitored Israel’s spiritual pulse, to a human King to rule over Israel. And i’ll tell you, you can sense from the Scriptures that Samuel the priest, judge, and prophet was not happy about this change.  Today we are going to look at how Samuel was called to Judge Israel… and put the Israelites back on track to serving God, and God alone.”
