The Gospel According to Judges– The Fruit of Apostasy

Series: The Gospel According to Judges

Message: The Fruit of Apostasy

As we read Judges 9, we will feel the weight of sin, deceit, violence and revenge. It is not a pleasant story. Yet, it is in God’s Word. Why?

I believe God wants us to understand the consequences of rejecting him- and he presents it in vivid detail in Judges 9.

The Gospel According to Judges– The Comfort of Gideon

June 17, 2018 by · Leave a Comment 

Series: The Gospel According to Judges

Message: The Comfort of Gideon

In this message, we see how Gideon moves from a man of faith to a man of the world during the forty years of peace experienced by Israel after defeating the Medianites.

Sometimes, comfort and ease can be very dangerous as we rely more on our own talents and abilities rather than relying on God.

Series: The Gospel According to Judges

Message: The Comfort of Gideon

This Sunday we will finish the story of Gideon.

Last week we saw that Gideon overcame incredible odds to rout the Midianites in battle. But it was actually God who provided the victory.

This Sunday, we see how Gideon finishes the battle and then, perhaps more importantly, how he handles the comfort and peace that comes to Israel.

To prepare, read Judges 8.

 

Looking forward to Sunday!

 

Grace and peace,

Doug

June 10th News– The Conquest of Gideon

Series: The Gospel According to Judges

Message: The Conquest of Gideon

This Sunday we will continue the story of Gideon.

 

Finally Gideon is fully prepared for battle. The time to defeat the Midianites has arrived.

To prepare, read Judges 7:8b-25.

As some of you already have heard, I took a tumble down our stairs last Monday morning at 3:30am. Thankfully, my head, neck, and back did not sustain any major damage. My left shoulder, however, seemed to be the thing that took the brunt of the force. I had surgery last Monday and returned home Tuesday afternoon. I believe that recovery is going well (I’ve never gone though something like this before) and the pain is under control.

I will be there Sunday and am prepared to preach! Please continue to pray for healing… And for my family– they are serving me well and generously.

Looking forward to Sunday!

 

Grace and peace,

Doug

May 27th News– The Conditions of Gideon

May 25, 2018 by · Leave a Comment 

Series: The Gospel According to Judges

Message: The Conditions of Gideon

This Sunday we will continue the story of Gideon.

Gideon has torn down the altars to pagan Gods in his father’s house and he seems ready to do what God has called him to do. But we’ll see that Gideon needs some more persuasion from God.

How often do we find ourselves second guessing what we believe God is telling us? I think we all spend a lot of time wrestling with this. What does Gideon do? What should we do?

To prepare, read Judges 6:33-40.

Looking forward to Sunday!

 

Grace and peace,

Doug

In this message, we see Gideon having to deal with the idols in his father’s house. Sometimes God has us look internally before he uses us to influence the world externally.
