Following Someone To Do Evil

In Admonition, Podcasts by Aaron Cozort


2 Samuel 2:8-10


2 Samuel 2:8-10 – But Abner the son of Ner, commander of Saul’s army, took Ishbosheth the son of Saul and brought him over to Mahanaim; and he made him king over Gilead, over the Ashurites, over Jezreel, over Ephraim, over Benjamin, and over all Israel. Ishbosheth, Saul’s son, was forty years old when he began to reign over Israel, and he reigned two years. Only the house of Judah followed David.
And now, Admonition, brought to you by the Collierville Church of Christ.
There’s a lesson in the Old Testament about following the influence of a person to do evil. Ishbosheth is one who is one of the sons of Saul, and at age forty he will become king over Israel when Saul dies. But how did he become king?
He became king because one of the commanders of Saul’s army, Abner, made him king. He followed Abner’s influence to do something that was wrong. Abner had no authority to make him king, and he’ll reign as king over Israel for two years and then he’ll be murdered.
He lost his life because he followed someone in their evil deeds.
