Give Us a King

February 27, 2022 Preacher: Jake Grogan Series: First Samuel

Scripture: 1 Samuel 8:1–22

In this text, poor leadership tempts Israel into making an ungodly decision. They reject God's rule and ask for an earthly king. When we reject the rule & reign of God, we don’t get freedom; we get oppression.

I. We Learn a Lesson from Samuel (vv. 1–3)
- The lesson: There is only one King
II. We Learn a Lesson from the Elders of Israel (vv. 4–9)
- The lesson: We tend to look for fleshly solutions to spiritual problems
III. We Learn a Lesson from God (vv. 10–22)
- The lesson: When we reject the rule & reign of God, we don’t get freedom; we get oppression.
