Daily Devotional (December-16-2022) THE NEW TESTAMENT SAMUEL
Scripture Reference: 1 Samuel 12:20-25 - “Don't be afraid," Samuel reassured them… Don't go back to worshiping worthless idols that cannot help or rescue you—they really are useless! The Lord will not abandon his chosen people, for that would dishonor his great name. He made you a special nation for himself. "As for me, I will certainly not sin against the Lord by ending my prayers for you. And I will continue to teach you what is good and right. But be sure to fear the Lord and sincerely worship him. Think of all the wonderful things he has done for you. But if you continue to sin, you and your king will be destroyed."
These are the words of the prophet Samuel to the people of Israel, he made profound statements telling them about their decision and it's results, after they asked for a king and God gave them one. You are the Samuel in this days my dear Christian. Samuel was focused and always on point. He was not two ways about the truth of God's Word. Samuel started with eliminating fear.
He spoke the truth as how it is to the people of Israel; Idols cannot help us. They’re useless. An idol can be anything taking the place of God in your heart. Can be money, fame, career, work, your body, etc.
God will not abandon His people. He never forsake His chosen for anything.
Samuel continues; a servant of God sins when he does not pray for the people he ministers to. A Christian is not selfish. He doesn't only think about himself and family.
A servant (Christian) of God both prays and teaches. He should have the Word of God at heart. You can't give what you don't have.
He told them to fear God, worship Him and remember the wonderful things He has done.
A people who are being prayed for and taught well can be destroyed by God if they persist in sin, evil and disobedience. Truth is the only thing that liberates mankind into destiny. Our God warned the same people He promised not to abandon that sin would destroy them if they continued in it. Be careful about sin. It is not harmless. It can actually cost you everything. You are the New Testament Samuel to your generation. My dear, start seeing yourself this way.
PRAYER - Dear Father, your Word is my light and wisdom, by which I live my life and help others to see the truth. I'm the Samuel to my generation everyday, everywhere, and at all times in Jesus' Name. Amen.
The Bible Project (April-29-2020) New Testament Letters: Literary Context. In the New Testament, there are 21 letters written by early Christian leaders to communities of Jesus' followers in the ancient Roman world.

Rick Renner (October 24, 2018) - How Many Apostles Are Named in the New Testament? If you were to take the entire list of those who were sent forth apostolically in the New Testament, there are at least 83 people in the New Testament who are called “apostles.” All of this makes it very clear that apostolic ministry has continued beyond the original 12 apostles. Just as prophets, evangelists, pastors, and teachers have continued for 2,000 years, the apostolic gift has also continued; it has simply been more or less unrecognized.
