A Solemn Warning Against Provoking God (Family Worship in 1Samuel 15:24–35)

Pastor leads his family in today's Hopewell @Home Scripture, 1Samuel 15:24–35. Some come to this passage to set v29 against v35 on the issue of the immutability of God's eternal decree. But neither is talking about this, so those who do so miss two critical lessons. (1) There is a point of no return, where God closes the door to repentance, v29. (2) Sin is extremely offensive to the living and holy God, v35. Taken together, this passage is a solemn warning to take sin seriously and not provoke God.
