The message this week is titled, Better Call Saul. In it we look at the life of King Saul, the first king of Israel. Saul had everything going for him – God had spoken powerful promises over his life and given him prophetic signs to guarantee that God would be with Him no matter what. But Saul didn’t walk in what God had promised and ended a life filled with potential by being a miserable failure rejected by God.
Saul’s life teaches us how to avoid the pitfalls of self-reliance and latch onto what God has spoken over our lives.
From Series: "Life Lessons of People you Should Know"
The scripture says, “For everything that was written in the past was written to teach us, so that through endurance and the encouragement of the Scriptures we might have hope.”
God uses the lives of men and women to teach us important life lessons. He shows the heroes and the failures, their weaknesses and strengths, in hope that it will not only point us to Jesus, but also teach us by example, that we may benefit by the experiences of those who have come before us.
