Misplaced Faith

Morning Service
Mar 17, 2019

Defeated by the Philistines, Israel’s army brought the ark of the covenant to Shiloh to assure victory in the next battle—and were soundly beaten again! Their mistake? Failing to recognize their first defeat as punishment for disobedience, they forsook repentance and superstitiously trusted in the ark rather than in the living God. Such misplaced faith is still common today. Rather than defining God by our own terms, Alistair Begg encourages us to know the God of the Bible and glorify Him through our obedience.

1 Samuel 4:1-11
