I.E8SON TEXT-I Samuel 3 Ml 19. SO.
GOI.DKN Ti:XT-8ieak Jehovah for
thy servant hcarelli I Samuel J IX. V.
Snmucl was the last Judgo and tlia
first of tho order of prophets. Ills
nama means 'naked of God" and ho
wns dedicated to God (I'll) as a Naz-
trite. In fulfillment of his mother's
row ho was brought to tho temple
when ho was a young child (1:24) Jc-
scpliUB sajs nt twelve )cars of age.
Hannah's sons of rejoicing (2:1-10) Is
tho expression of a great soul and a
cholco plcco of literature. Samuel
had the advantngo of being well horn
but after studying nil's household we
aro not so confident ns to tho environ-
ment amid which ho was placed.
I. Samuel' Vision w. MO. Tho
young child entered heartily Into tho
templo worship and duties aa directed
by tho aged priest Ell. This man was
not faithful In giving tho people tho
word of Clod. "It was rare" (margin)
and tho result was that "thcro was no
frequent vision" (It. V.). Tho word
Is also "precious" (v. 1; I's. 19.9 10)
though when It is as common as It Is
la this land men frequently set but
little store by it. God will Judgo men
for such laxity even as ho judged
Israel (Amos 8:4 C. 11 12)." A vision
Is a knowledge of a need and of the
resources at our command. Ell and
his sons had no vision and a people
lacking In this direction perish (I'ror.
29:18). Jehovah Is about to mako
known to Israel his will and In so do-
ing ho pauses over this indulscnl father
and chooses tho child Samuel. Teach-
ableness and obedience aro tho chief
characteristics of childhood and these
traits count for mora with God than
does ago or experienco (Matt. 11 25
I Tim. 4:12 Matt. 21:0). Samuel had
not acquired tha conceit of joutli ho
was faithful to his duties respectful to
his elders and did not boast of his
accomplishments nor of the special
revelation which camo to Mm. Sam-
uel slept In tha holy place of tho "sa-
cred tent" near Ell for tho great
templo was not yet built. As such ha
Is a typo for the Christian (I's 27:4).
It was there that tho Lord revealed
himself to him (John 1.14 11. V. mar
gin). Ono of Samuel's duties as the
cpeclal attendant of Ell was to open
tho houso of God ever' morning also
to tend tho sacred lamp which burned
from evening to morning (Ex. 27'20
21). As ho attended to theso duties
God mado himself known to Samuel
(v. 4) God frequently tolls men and
they aro not at home but have gono
Into tho far country. Samuel knew
God ns every devout worshiper know
him but had not yet received a direct
revelation lienco he "did not yet know
Jehovah." Thinking at onco of thu
prict Samuel ran to receive orders
or to render service. Had ho dlsre
garded tho voice ho would not in tho
end havo received his clear revelation.
To havo closed his cars turnrd over
for further Bleep or to havo risen hesi-
tatingly would. In all probability have
prevented any further calls (I'rov.
1:24 2G 2S). God wants for special
services those who mako glad re-
sponse to his first call (Isa. C:8; Luke
9:r9C2; Acts 9:6). Three times tho
call comes and threo times Samuel
Tho teacher needs to bo ever alert
to take adrantago of theso opportu
nlttes to unfold and enforce tho claims
of Christ nnd to challenge an Immo
dlato decision of the soul Happy are
they who like Samuel hear and recog-
nize even though It bo a progressiva
revelation tho volco of Jehovah and
hearing obey It. Thero Is little need
at present for tho audible volco for
wo have the word and the still small
volco of tho Holy Spirit. Tho volco
Samuel heard became a vision (v. 1C).
II. Jhovahs Verdict vv. 11-13 19
20. Tho chapter following tolls of tho
defeat of Israel tho capture of tho
ark and tho death of Ell and his sons.
Theso vrero tho things "at which both
tho earn of ever ono that hcareth It
Bhall tlnglo." Tho word of Jehovah
stands fast and what he speaks that
ho performs "from tho beginning oven
unto tho end" (Luko 21:32 Numbers
23:19). Tho word of Jehovah to Sam-
uel about tho house of Ell was ono
calculated to strike terror and silence
Into tho lad's heart. Ell wns not Igno-
rant of tho wickedness of his sons
2:27-36;. Ell loams from Samuel Jo-
hov all's message. Eli was a great and
good man submlsslvo to God's will
but ho was a weak man rather than
Just piously resigned. Ho might bet-
ter havo prayed for mercy and
strength to deal with his wicked sons.
However It was too late to change
"And Samuel grew tnd Jehovah was
with blm" (vv. 19. 20; eco also Luke
2:52). Jesus also grew normally
(Luko 1:80). "When Ood calls bo
qualifies; when ho qualifies he calls"
(Matthew Henry). Samuel was trained
In tho houso of God to bo a great
prophet (1) by tho dedication of his
parents and tho prayers of his mother;
(2) by' tho teaching of Ell the priest
of God; (3) by tho routine of service
In tho duties assigned htm; (4) by the
testing of temptation In his contact
with the sons of Ell.
