God Calls a Prophet

1 Samuel 1 – 3

Why did Boaz redeem Ruth?

What did Hannah Gain:

The thing she prayed for, a son.

We do not fully possess the things we grasp until we let them go. 1:28

Consider Jesus, Philippians 2:6-7

A joyful heart.

The God of her ancestors became her Savior.

Giving Samuel away completed her delight in God.

A greater blessing than she could have imagined.

Samuel was the Billy Graham of the OT.  

Samuel had authority because he spoke in God’s name.

What can I give to God that will increase in value?
