The Presence of God
A Sermon on 1 Samuel 4:21-22
And she named the child Ichabod, saying, “The glory has departed from Israel!” because the ark of God had been captured and because of her father-in-law and her husband. And she said, “The glory has departed from Israel, for the ark of God has been captured.” (ESV)
The church at a low point; look for the cause; realisation of the presence; having much is not enough; the church has forgotten God; sensitivity to the presence; missing his departure; humbled by God's presence; lack of good teaching; obey his commands and pray.
