The Birth of Samuel

We started a new sermon series this morning at Redeemer Church (PCA) on the book of 1 Samuel. Be blessed.

1 Samuel is about three men:
1. Samuel
2. Saul
3. David

The book begins with Isreal in a state of severe spiritual decline. Philistines were in control and Mosaic worship is corrupt.

Verses 1-20 can be studied under three headings:
1. Hannah's problem
2. Hannah's prayer
3. Hannah's peace

Lessons to be learned:
1. We will experience trials
2. Hannah's trials mirror that of church - a desire for the coming of Christ
