Verse of the Day

If one person sins against another, God may mediate for the offender; but if anyone sins against the LORD, who will intercede for them?” [NIV] 1 Samuel 2:25a


In the above passage, Eli’s sons had rebelliously/wilfully/defiantly persisted in abusing their priestly office for a very long time (1 Samuel 2:12,17), and the Lord was not happy about this. Even though Eli warned his sons about the severity of their wickedness, they’d been at it for so long that God decided to bring Judgement on them. His judgement on them was His sovereign act of preventing them from heading their father’s warning, which in itself was an act of judgement and was consistent with the wicked characters of the sons. Now, if we were to check our lives, will we find some appalling activities which we’ve been at for so long which we know is so bad that if we were left to continue in them, it would lead to our detriment? Don’t we think it’s time we asked God to step in and help us not to do them again? I pray that may we never persistently/wilfully continue in our inexcusable ways to the point where our actions compels God not help us! #VerseoftheDay #SamuelChallenge
