Scripture: Matthew 10:24-27
Matthew 10:24-27 says, “A disciple is not above his teacher, nor a servant above his master. It is enough for a disciple that he be like his teacher, and a servant like his master. If they have called the master of the house Beelzebub, how much more will they call those of his household! Therefore do not fear them. For there is nothing covered that will not be revealed, and hidden that will not be known. Whatever I tell you in the dark, speak in the light; and what you hear in the ear, preach on the housetops.” Jesus said that we have to be willing to shout from the housetops what we hear Him speak in the dark. Are we willing to say what Jesus says? Saul was not willing to do what the Lord told him to do. As judicial and bloody as it was, it was divine justice and it had to be done. But Saul refused to do it. As a result it cost him his kingship. What will we forfeit by refusing to obey the Lord and pray judgment on deceived leaders?
