What Shall We Do with Clear Instructions?
After Samuel anointed Saul, Samuel gave Saul clear instructions on what he was to do, concluding with this, “You shall go down before me to Gilgal; and surely I will come down to you to offer burnt offerings and make sacrifices of peace offerings. Seven days you shall wait, till I come to you and show you what you should do” (1 Samuel 10.8).
Those do not seem like difficult instructions to follow, but we will see whether Saul does what Samuel said by the direction of the Lord.

Shall Only Jews Be in the Kingdom?
Someone asked Jesus whether there are few who are saved, and He gave an explanation that included this, “They will come from the east and the west, from the north and the south, and sit down in the kingdom of God” (Luke 13.29).
Jesus had indicated in the sentence before that some of the Jews would be shocked to discover themselves cast out of the kingdom, and then Jesus said the words quoted above.
Regardless of who you are or where you are from, if you follow and obey the Lord Jesus Christ, you shall sit down in the kingdom of heaven. DR
