Samuel’s Steps of Faith


Samuel 3:1-10 

Samuel’s first step of faith is taken by someone else (his family) that step is bringing him to be part of the worship of God and the ways of God’s family.

The second step in Samuel’s faith journey is that he lives alongside worshipers of God, and learns to live and act like a follower of God. This is still before he comes to faith in God.

Third, Samuel is trained in the things of God. Learning how to minister before the Lord. This is also before he comes to faith.

The fourth step for Samuel is that he hears God’s call.

The Fifth step in his journey of faith is that Samuel acknowledges God  by faith, and with the help of another.

Then sixth, Samuel accepts God’s instruction and carries out the work of the God as his Lord.
