I read recently that during the filming of the 1959 blockbuster film, Ben Hur, Charlton Heston, playing the lead role in the movie, expressed concerns about the 9 minute chariot race scene. When Heston reportedly told his director, William Wyler, “I think I can drive the chariot, but I’m not sure I can win the race.” Wyler replied: “You just stay in the race…I’ll make sure you win.” In a different setting, those words might well describe the Christian life. Often we become so discouraged in the race of life, surrendering to a survival mentality, until God whispers "You just stay in the race- I will make sure you win." God's sovereignty is a theme emphasized throughout Scripture; one such place is the Old Testament Book of 1 Samuel. In today's introduction to 1 Samuel, pastor Darrell provides a brief overview, highlighting 4 major themes found throughout the Book.
