AUGUST 13, 2016 | #1633—Judges: Not to the Strong, Part 1

Judges–Not to the Strong: Ehud

The book of Judges speaks directly into our culture today. Without strong leadership, both politically and spiritually, we can expect to see everyone doing what is right in their own eyes. This was the case in Israel as well, as the overall message surrounding Judges shows how the lack of spiritual direction and leadership in Israel produced an apathetic nature toward the things of God. Join Chris as he begins a mini-series on the book of Judges and shows us how God in His mercy heard His people’s suffering and sent Ehud to them. Once again leadership in Israel fell off the rails and with it went the people as well. As Judges chapter 6 opens, the people of Israel once again did what was evil in the sight of the Lord and lost their way. This is when the Lord called Gideon to be a judge or deliverer for Israel. However, contrary to Ehud, Gideon is going to need convincing that God is on his side.
