Bible Notes

1 Samuel 10:1 (22.03.21)

1 Samuel 10:1
Then Samuel took a flask of olive oil and poured it on Saul’s head and kissed him, saying, “Has not the Lord anointed you ruler over his inheritance?”

I love this image of how God calls us to work for him. He isn’t a remote or demanding master giving his employees or servants tasks, no look how Samuel, God’s representative, treats Saul here. He pours oil on him, symbolising God’s Spirit being poured into his life, a close companion with us, helping us in that work, and kissing him, a sign of his love.

What is God calling you to be involved in or do right now? Know that he does that in love and goes with you!
