For Today the Lord Has Worked Salvation in Israel
Saul had become king for this moment. The enemy Nahash arrives and wants to humiliate and weaken Israel, as the enemies of God's people want to do today. God's help can come from surprising places like Gibeah, which had a shameful history. The enemies of the church make Christ look attractive! Saul is clear that Salvation comes from the Lord. All the people now get behind Saul. Is the Lord likewise our King? Are we serving Him, and what is the evidence?
