Repentance and Deliverance – An Exegesis of 1 Samuel 7 by Kim Guilliams, MA
The Greater Heritage Study Guides are concise yet thorough booklets that shed light on important Biblical truths, as well as significant moments and figures in church history.
In this Study Guide, Kim Guilliams, MA (The Problem of Angst: Answers from the Book of Ecclesiastes) teaches life-changing lessons about repentance by looking at the dramatic deliverance of the Israelites from the Philistines in I Samuel 7.“No matter what we have done or how long we have waited, we can turn in repentance and find God immediately at our side.”
Her narrative challenges Christians to stop holding onto sin, and instead give up sin for freedom in Christ.
As she points out, just as Yahweh was compassionate and forgiving when the Israelites returned to him after 20 years of idol worship, we too can rest in the precious truth that no matter what we have done or how long we have waited, we can turn in repentance and find God immediately at our side.
Both challenging and uplifting, Repentance and Deliverance – An Exegesis of 1 Samuel 7 encourages readers to be thankful for a perfectly faithful Savior whose righteous life has been credited to their account, and whose faithfulness is not dependent on our fickle faith.
