I Samuel 2:12-36 - Emphasis on 2:12 and 30

Rev. Bruce Brown

I.    God's Preparation in a Priestly Presence.

      (verses 12-21)

II.   God's Provision Through Fatherly disapproval.

      (verses 22-26)

III.  God's Pronouncement of Judgment and Grace.

       (verses 27-36)

“Samuel’s obedience reminds us to look behind the scenes to where God is working with grace.  Regardless of fleshly appearances, the real action is always taking place wherever God is honored, where his Word is revered, and where humble commitment to the LORD is sincerely lived out.” (Phillips)
