Pastor Sam takes us through some important events in the History of God’s people to prepare us for our Summer Sermon Series: Solomon, The Way, The Wisdom, The Warning.
We start with Samuel’s warning to God’s people who wanted a king, “just like the other nations.” Samuel tells them NOT to want a king just like the others, but to desire a king like God himself. We see the people struggle with this all through the reign of Saul and even David. Solomon comes to reign through much trial and controversy, but in the midst of all of it, when God asks Solomon what he wants, he desires wisdom. What we find is that our true source of wisdom is also our true source of redemption, Christ himself.
