What We Want Isn't Always What We Need
Passage: 1 Samuel 8:1–22
Title: What We Want Isn't Always What We Need
Text: 1 Samuel 8:1-22
We pursue what we desire (1 Sam. 8:1-8).
We end up paying for our selfish pursuits (1 Sam. 8:9-17).
We don't want to be comformed to God (1 Sam. 19-21).
God lets us make choices but we'll have consequences (1 Sam. 8:22-9:2).
- God lets us make choices but He redeems them to bring about His will.
What we need is not conformity to the world but conformity to Jesus.
1) Place your wants and desire at the feet of king Jesus.
2) Lean into your identity in Jesus.
