On his pastoral anniversary, Bishop Claude Alexander preaches what he would preach to another pastor or anyone in leadership. Utilizing the text of Saul’s decision to forgo waiting on Samuel and to make his own burnt offering to God, Alexander explores several competing tensions Saul and leaders have to navigate and negotiate. He explains that how God’s people resolve those tensions reveals their core and their source of security. Remembering God’s promises and faithfulness will help us handle competing tensions.
Scripture: I Samuel 13:1-14 NLT
