Sermon Notes
The Reluctant Judge ~Judges 6-8

  • žThe pattern of Judges: Israel disobeys, God sends an enemy against them, the people cry out, God raises up a judge to save them, the judge dies, the people disobey (repeat)
  • With Gideon:
    • After 40 years of peace, the people sinned and God sent Midian against them
    • God raised up Gideon, a reluctant judge
  • We Learn:
    • Our hearts are naturally inclined to idolatry
    • Our hope must be in Jesus, the greatest Savior and JudgežWe learn:
      • God delights in using the weak
      • –We should aim to grow strong and mature in faith
