The Sword & The Spear

04 September 2016



1 Samuel 13:19-22


Things have taken another bad turn in Israel in 1 Samuel 13:19-22 as they find themselves without weapons because their enemy has taken their swords and spears away. This sad state of affairs serves as a reminder not to take our spiritual weapon, the Word of God, for granted but to tightly cling to it.
