For the week of: Wednesday, February 1, 2017

This Wednesday is NOT Worship Wednesday. Worship Wednesday has been postponed until the 8th for the RIDE Album event.

This Wednesday – the unfortunate roller coaster of Israel’s relationship with God continues. Once again, they did evil in the Lord’s sight. Their conqueror arises from within their lands. Why is this significant? Their punishment was a direct result of their failure to follow God’s instructions. They brought it on themselves. In this story we learn that God sometimes calls us to direct action, but sometimes we are called to raise others up. He shows His willingness to work within and despite our weaknesses. Even when we come into battle with all of our human strength and power, God is the one who does the true work in saving us.

The first hero (Othneil) was already an Israelite hero. God’s choice for Othneil to be the first Judge makes sense. But who is Ehud? This week we will take a brief look at God’s chosen specialist. What can we learn from Israel’s second and third chances? What does it mean for God to give control of His people over to a foreign ruler? Ehud took drastic action. When is this called for? What would that mean today? Finally, we will be looking at the incredibly brief description of Shamgar, and what can we learn about God’s power? All of this and more this Wednesday at Elevate!

Who was Othniel? Why would God choose to work through him? This week we will look at the first of the Age of Heroes. Israel “did evil in the Lord’s sight.” What does this mean? What does God’s justice look like? What does it mean for the “Sprit of the Lord” to come upon someone? Why is this significant? All of this and more this Wednesday at Elevate!

It is sometimes easy to forget that the books of the Old Testament are not just a collection of stories with little application to our everyday lives. The OT books are filled with vivid examples of God’s love, mercy, and justice. The book of Judges is a wonderful example of this. Each story that we will study in this series will help us gain a deeper insight into what it means to be one of God’s heroes. This series will not be a verse-by-verse exposition but an examination of some key stories and from the book of Judges.
