Sermon Text: 1 Samuel 15:1-35


  1. Not Listening
  2. Listening to the Wrong Voices
  3. Rejection

Reflection Questions:

  1. What are some parts of the Bible that you don’t like to hear? Why do you prefer, in those cases, to listen to your own voice rather than God’s voice?
  2. How have you convinced yourself that your sin isn’t really sin? How have you told yourself that your sin is really “serving God”?
  3. What are some methods you regularly devise to try to justify yourself before God? How do these methods expose your insecurity?
  4. What is your motivation for obedience? How are you trying to earn God’s favor with your good works?
