1 Samuel 5:1-7:2 - The Ark Returns
Topic: Sunday Morning Teaching Passage: 1 Samuel 5:1–7:2
If you have a relative that served in a war, chances are they came home with something from the front lines. While most war trophies are a privilege to possess, some people wish they never brought them home. Danny Nightingale was jailed for 18 months after he plead guilty to possessing an unregistered 9mm pistol that he was given to him after his 2007 tour in Iraq. This week, as we return to the book of 1 Samuel, we will look at the ultimate trophy of war — the ark of the covenant — and we will learn why the Philistines regretted bringing it home.
