Renungan harian alkitab, 1 Samuel 13, jumat,” King Saul sin, Dosa raja Saul”

1 Samuel 13:12-14 (NKJV)  then I said, ‘The Philistines will now come down on me at Gilgal, and I have not made supplication to the Lord.’ Therefore I felt compelled, and offered a burnt offering.”

And Samuel said to Saul, “You have done foolishly. You have not kept the commandment of the Lord your God, which He commanded you. For now the Lord would have established your kingdom over Israel forever.

But now your kingdom shall not continue. The Lord has sought for Himself a man after His own heart, and the Lord has commanded him to be commander over His people, because you have not kept what the Lord commanded you.”

Mengapa Tuhan mencopot kewenangan Raja Saul, dan menarik urapan dari pada Saul?

Saul mengambil alih fungsi Nabi, ia mempersembahkan korban bakaran yang hanya dilakukan imam dan Nabi, ia juga berbohong kepada Nabi, dan ia sangat populis, demi ambisi tidak di tinggal oleh  rakyat ia melanggar perintah Tuhan. Saul bersandar pada pengikut bukan kepada Tuhan, ia melawan Tuhan dan Nabi demi popularitas.

Para pembaca terkasih Saul adalah pemimpin yang diperhamba oleh popularitas, demi popularitas, ia melanggar perintah Tuhan, pemimpin yang lebih takut kepada manusia daripada kepada Tuhan.

Kepemimpinan Kristen, baik dalam gereja, bussiness, pekerjaan, rumah tangga , berdasarkan iman kepada Tuhan, dan ketaatan pada firman, beriman kepada Tuhan adalah percaya dan taat pada perintah Tuhan, dan tidak diperhamba para pengikut.
