Prayer
400 Prayers for Preachers Waiting and Longing for the Lord’s Return

O keep me while I tarry on this earth, in daily serious breathings after you, and in a believing, affectionate walking with you: and when you come, O let me be found so doing, not hiding my talent, nor serving my flesh, nor yet asleep with my lamp unfurnished, but waiting and longing for my Lord’s return.

Message

/ Hiding Among The Baggage
1 Samuel 10:1 ESV
1 Then Samuel took a flask of oil and poured it on his head and kissed him and said, “Has not the Lord anointed you to be prince over his people Israel? And you shall reign over the people of the Lord and you will save them from the hand of their surrounding enemies. And this shall be the sign to you that the Lord has anointed you to be prince over his heritage.
1 Samuel 10:9 ESV
9 When he turned his back to leave Samuel, God gave him another heart. And all these signs came to pass that day.
1 Samuel 10:10 ESV
10 When they came to Gibeah, behold, a group of prophets met him, and the Spirit of God rushed upon him, and he prophesied among them.
1 Samuel 10:14–16 ESV
14 Saul’s uncle said to him and to his servant, “Where did you go?” And he said, “To seek the donkeys. And when we saw they were not to be found, we went to Samuel.” 15 And Saul’s uncle said, “Please tell me what Samuel said to you.” 16 And Saul said to his uncle, “He told us plainly that the donkeys had been found.” But about the matter of the kingdom, of which Samuel had spoken, he did not tell him anything.
Saul tells the truth but not the whole truth...
maybe Saul does not really want this calling…
1 Sam 10.
1 Samuel 10:17–19 ESV
17 Now Samuel called the people together to the Lord at Mizpah. 18 And he said to the people of Israel, “Thus says the Lord, the God of Israel, ‘I brought up Israel out of Egypt, and I delivered you from the hand of the Egyptians and from the hand of all the kingdoms that were oppressing you.’ 19 But today you have rejected your God, who saves you from all your calamities and your distresses, and you have said to him, ‘Set a king over us.’ Now therefore present yourselves before the Lord by your tribes and by your thousands.”
This is not the kind of speech you would expect before the calling of a King…
1 Samuel 10:22 ESV
22 So they inquired again of the Lord, “Is there a man still to come?” and the Lord said, “Behold, he has hidden himself among the baggage.”
1 Samuel 10:23–27 ESV
23 Then they ran and took him from there. And when he stood among the people, he was taller than any of the people from his shoulders upward. 24 And Samuel said to all the people, “Do you see him whom the Lord has chosen? There is none like him among all the people.” And all the people shouted, “Long live the king!” 25 Then Samuel told the people the rights and duties of the kingship, and he wrote them in a book and laid it up before the Lord. Then Samuel sent all the people away, each one to his home. 26 Saul also went to his home at Gibeah, and with him went men of valor whose hearts God had touched. 27 But some worthless fellows said, “How can this man save us?” And they despised him and brought him no present. But he held his peace.
1 Samuel 10:23–24 ESV

Are you hiding in the baggage?
sinner
because you love your baggage
because you are ignorant of the things of God
because you are afraid of taking responsibility
the crown to come
saint
because you are mistaken about your salvation
because you are a lazy servant
because the kingdom has lost its splendor to you
because you are managing the good with neglecting the great

When you come to die it will be a sore matter of regret to you that you did not serve your Master more. I never heard of a Christian who died lamenting he had done too much for Christ, been too earnest, too indefatigable, and so had shortened his life. There have been men who have shortened their lives for Christ, but even when chidden by their friends they have only gone on working still, and have rejoiced to die for his dear sake.

Are you retrieving others from their baggage? [long live the King!]
sinners
he who has been forgiven much will love much
because you yourself know all to well that snare of satan
saints
cain - we are our brothers keeper
when one is weak we are all weak
