Losing My Religion
There are two major and related returns in chapter 7 of 1 Samuel. The first is the return of Samuel to the story after a three chapter absence. The second is the return of Israel to true faith and renewed covenant commitment. I said related because it is clear the preaching of Samuel led the people back to the Lord. Hoping we will all benefit from this vivid picture of true faith and repentance as well as the amazing mercy of God.
