Wesley's Notes for 1 Samuel 15:22

15:22 Sacrifice - Because obedience to God is a moral duty, constantly and indispensably necessary; but sacrifice is but a ceremonial institution, sometimes unnecessary, as it was in the wilderness: and sometimes sinful, when it is offered by a polluted hand, or in an irregular manner. Therefore thy gross disobedience to God's express command, is not to be compensated with sacrifice. Hearken - That is, to obey. Fat - Then the choicest part of all the sacrifice.

 

Comments for 1 Samuel 15:22

Apostle Jessical's comment on 2015-04-23 07:34:06:

1Sam. 15 22, Have a revaluation meaning for today.. Yes Jesus Christ was given to us by the Father as our last and final sacrifice, The Only Perfect One Who Can Take Away Out Sin.. But I Believe In All The Father Has Given Us Through Jesus Christ, salvation is free.. It has been given by way of confession, But after you have confess it 's better to live and obedient life here on earth, Yes We Know Jesus Christ has gone to prepare a place for us.. But He has also given us the Holy Spirit to lead and guide us unto righteousness for His Glory..Still today obedience is better when it come to receiving the fullness of what Jesus Christ done on the cross with His blood and His resurrection, Jesus Christ was given all power and He also released that same power unto us so that we can obey The Word Of God.. Jesus Christ is no longer on the cross, But obedience is still required of us.. Jesus Christ lived in obedient to The Father.. If we Love God He says we will not continue to live a sinful life.. Obey GOD and live a better life..!!
