Sermon Notes
From Ichabod to Ebenezer ~ 1 Samuel 4-7

The presence of God destroys our heart-idols and restores us to true worship…

  • Idolatry always leads to ruin (1 Samuel 4)
  • The presence of God smashes our idols and demands our obedience (1 Samuel 5:1-7:2)
  • We need to repent and trust in God (7:3-17)
  • Our realities:
    • Jesus himself is our Ark and our Ebenezer (stone of remembrance that God has helped us; Hebrews 9:1-10:25)
    • When we repent and trust in Jesus, we receive the Holy Spirit–God’s presence and glory in our lives
