Sunday Evening| Pastor Steve Wainright | 1 Samuel 14:47-15:11
The word of the Lord came to Samuel: “I regret that I have made Saul king, for he has turned back from following Me and has not performed My commandments.” And Samuel was angry, and he cried to the Lord all night. -1 Samuel 15:10-11
Partial obedience is still disobedience. Saul did not fulfill God’s Word.
Saul was instructed to completely and utterly destroy the Amalekites. He was looking good in verses 4-7, but then in verses 8-9, Saul kept King Agag and all that he saw that was best alive. He spared the best of evil, but even the best of evil is still evil.
