Sept 28: Eli and Boy Samuel

Posted on: September 29th, 2014 by Amy Vetter

Hannah had a good life but one thing for her was missing. Hannah wanted a child. At the tabernacle, Hannah became distressed and prayed that God would give her a son. God granted Hannah’s prayer and a year later she gave birth to a son named, Samuel. God spoke to Samuel and gave him a harsh message for Eli and his family. Samuel was used by God to share His Word, but the Book of John tells us that Jesus is the Word. Samuel told people what God wanted them to do, but Jesus showed people through His life how God wanted them to live. Jesus ultimately freed people from the power of sin by dying on the cross.

Big Picture Question for Kids: How did God
use Samuel?

Big Picture Answer for Kids: God used Samuel
to share His plan with the nation of Israel.

Christ Connection: Samuel used God’s words
to tell the people what God is like. John 1:1 says
that Jesus is the Word. Jesus showed the world
what God is like, and He told people to turn away
from their sin. Jesus ultimately freed people from
the power of sin by dying on the cross and rising
again.
