    1 Samuel 3:1

    KJV 1 And the child Samuel ministered unto the LORD before Eli. And the word of the LORD was precious in those days; there was no open vision.



    Brenton 1 And the child Samuel ministered to the Lord before Eli the priest: and the word of the Lord was precious in those days, there was no distinct vision.



    These are my thoughts.

    Nothing is better then to grow up in the Lord.

    We need to be like Samuel and keep the lamp of God going but for us we are the lamps as Christians.

    What do we do when we hear God calling, do we answer or do we not act?

    I think it starts with John 10:27 - Jesus the speaker:
    "My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me."

    Quote from J. Vernon McGee
    "The brand of ownership on the sheep is obedience. Do you want to know whether a person is saved or not? Then see if he is obeying Christ."

    For many, the first response to God's calling is to believe.

    We don’t want to be judged by the Lord and the only way to escape judgment is to come to grace thru Jesus Christ and accept Him as our Lord and Savior.

    We should not hide the word of God but share the word and the gospel with the world.
