This message was given by Pastor Jonathan Stobbs as he continued his evening ministry in the Book of 1 Samuel. After Jonathan's great advance of faith, Saul was intent on snatching defeat out of the jaws of victory. His actions and words revealed the spiritual condition of his heart. A foolish vow that seemed pious, led the army into sin. Much can be seen of our standing and growth in grace by the way that we act and speak to those around us, and certainly to our brothers and sisters in the Lord. With Saul, his words revealed his heart clearly and how it was controlled by pride, foolishness and deceit. He tried to impress people with his spirituality, and as such said all manner of foolish things, and this would be an attempt to hide the reality that he was walking far away from the Lord. Pastor Stobbs speaks with great clarity as he warns of the real danger of external show without inward faith.
