Eli and Boy Samuel (1 Samuel 1-3)

Josh RobertsComment

Dear Parents,

This week we wrap up our study of the Old Testament judges by studying Samuel. Samuel was called by God as a boy to tell Eli and the people of Israel about God’s plan.

READ: 1 Samuel 1-3 with your kids.

Main Point: God called Samuel to share God’s plan.

Samuel used God’s words to tell the people what God is like. John 1:1 says that Jesus is the Word. Jesus showed the world what God is like, and He told people to turn away from their sin. Jesus ultimately freed people from the power of sin by dying on the cross and rising again.

Help your kids connect Samuel using God’s words to tell others about what God is like and Jesus, the Word of God, showing the world perfectly what God is like because He is God.

This week’s North Star catechism question is…

61. What does the Holy Spirit use to change Christians? God’s word, prayer and trials.

For the Lord is our judge, the Lord is our lawgiver, the Lord is our king; it is he who will save us. Isaiah 33:22
