Reformed and Reforming (2019)

Passage: 1 Kings 12:1-17, 25-29
Service Type:

Rehoboam inherits his throne, surrounds himself with princelings, and does not pay attention to the work required to keep a kingdom together. In his cruelty, he loses the prized status as intermediary between God and the people in all of Israel. From this, we learn that the demonstration of power through cruelty is never what God calls for.
