Read chapters 4, 5 & 6 of 1 Samuel.  This is one of the great stories of the Bible.

Questions for you to ponder as you study…

Why were the Philistines initially able to defeat God’s chosen nation, Israel?

Why didn’t it help the Israelites to have the ark of the covenant in the battle with them?

How might a person today try to use something holy (such as the Bible or the name of Jesus) in a superstitious way?

What did the ark of the covenant represent? How does Jesus fulfill the same function in our lives?

What do the events regarding the ark teach us about what it means to call God holy?

You can stand before the glory of God because of the cross. How does knowing that make you feel?
