Sermon Notes

What voices to you listen to in your life? 

  • Which voices have authority?
  • Which voices do you ignore?
  • What authority does God’s voice have in your daily life?

The Story of Samuel

The story of Samuel hearing the voice of God is one of my favorites in scripture.  Here is a young boy growing in the faith and he hears a voice calling him in the night and thinks it is his mentor Eli.  He runs to Eli who is sleeping in a nearby room. Eventually Eli realizes that Samuel is hearing the voice of God, and instructs him to respond to it.  So the next time Samuel hears the voice he responds and as a result Samuel will become a great leader for God among his people.

God speaks to us through…

  • God’s Word
  • The Body of Christ—other Christians
  • Prayer, whispers, thoughts, impulses
  • Service and giving of ourselves
  • Events and circumstances

Don’t disconnect from…

  • God’s Word
  • Gods people—the Christian Community
  • Prayer
  • Opportunities for Serving and Giving
