Sermon Theme: Our desires give us a window into our hearts, which is exemplified by the Israelite's desire for a king. In God's mercy, He provides an unworthy king. The annointing of King Saul points us forward to the righteous obedient, and faithful king - the Lord Jesus. Therefore, we must be a people who know the King, cling to the King, and live for His glory!
