Sermons on Judges
This is the first message in a four week series based on the intriguing Old Testament book of Judges, which recounts the repeated cycles of disobedience and destruction that the ancient nation of Israel encountered. Such cycles remain in the fabric of today’s world. This message delves into this ancient historical book to discover helpful principles for our spiritual lives, with use of the often overlooked story of Ehud.
Following the inspired leadership of Moses and courageous successes of Joshua, Israel suffered from a leadership gap. Sin and unrest spiraled. Generations declined. The period of the judges is a sad illustration how God's people discard their faith and drown in failure. Fortunately, God mercy outlasts our rebellion. He can help us break break cycles and destroy idols.
The "key hangs at the back door."
What is the book of Judges about? Have you just read the stories about Deborah, Gideon, Samson etc. and missed the big story?
The setting of the book of Samuel, when there was no king in Israel, reminds us of how our cry for a king can be answered through Jesus, who desires to occupy the throne of our hearts.
