Evil and Triumph

Text: 1 Samuel 22:6-23
Rev. John Downs

What a stark contrast in today’s text between the perverse, irrational evil demonstrated by Saul, and the triumph of Yahweh in preserving a remnant of the priesthood through Abiathar.  God’s ultimate and final triumph over evil and sin has already been accomplished through the cross of Jesus, even as we continue to wait for his return.  Until then, as members of today’s priesthood of all believers, may we have the courage to continue showing up and speaking the truth in love, even if we may face consequences.
