Study 9 From the Book of 1 Samuel is: 1 Samuel 10:17-11:15
How does the story of Saul’s public election demonstrate God’s forbearance? See especially 10:19. Cf. Pss. 103:14, 15; 78:37-39; Rom. 2:4.
To what does Scripture attribute Saul’s vigorous action and his success? Cf. Acts 1:8. Do these verses come to you as a challenge, or a rebuke?
Consider what noble qualities Saul displays. See 9:21; 10:9, 16b, 22, 27c. Does your life give evidence of a similar work of God?
Note. 11:9. The men of Jabesh never forgot Saul’s rescue of them from the Ammonites. See 31:11-13.
