Mercy and Judgement

Evening Service
Mar 3, 2019

Like the lost described in Romans 1, Hophni and Phinehas were given up by God to the lusts of their hearts. Even in the darkness of their sin, though, a light shone through a man bearing God’s word. He announced the judgment looming over Eli’s house for spurning God’s mercy and assured a prospect for the Lord’s people: a coming priest—ultimately, Christ—who would be perfectly faithful. Highlighting the consequences of a sinful and unbelieving heart, Alistair Begg beseeches us to heed the warning expressed in God’s rejection of these immoral priests.

1 Samuel 2:27-36
