Series: The Gospel According to Judges

Message: The Conviction of Gideon

This Sunday we will continue the story of Gideon.

 

God has told Gideon that he would use him to save Israel from the oppression of the Midianites. But first, God will begin by preparing Gideon with a smaller mission.

To prepare, read Judges 6:25-40 and focus on the story about the altars.

Looking forward to Sunday!

 

Grace and peace,

Doug

Series: The Gospel According to Judges

Message: The Call of Gideon

This Sunday we will continue the story of Gideon.

 

Last week we saw that the people of Israel, again, turned from God– and, again, God pursues them.

This week we will look at whom God chooses as the fifth Judge of Israel. As we do, we will see some truths about God that we need to remember as we face the challenges in our lives.

To prepare, read Judges 6:1-24 and ask yourself this: What does this story reveal about God.

Looking forward to Sunday!

 

Grace and peace,

Doug

May 6th News– The Condition of Gideon

May 4, 2018 by · Leave a Comment 

Series: The Gospel According to Judges

Message: The Condition of Gideon

This Sunday we will begin the story of Gideon.

 

You will not be surprised that Judges 6 begins with this familiar line:

The Israelites did evil in the eyes of the Lord

When will they ever learn?!? Why would they keep messing around with sin when they’ve seen the disastrous results of such an endeavor? Don’t they know better?

Perhaps a more relevant question is this: Why do I keep messing with sin? Don’t I know better?

The beginning of Gideon’s story surprised me because I think it reveals a lot about us and our struggle with sin. It is a universal condition that can only be overcome one way.

To prepare, read Judges 6:1-10.

Also, we will be celebrating the Lord’s Supper together this weekend.

Looking forward to Sunday!

 

Grace and peace,

Doug

Series:  1 John

This Sunday we will continue our series on the Book of 1 John.

In this letter to the church, John presents many contrasts. This week we will hear about light and darkness. There are both good and pure experiences in this life and bad and evil experiences in this life. Everyday we encounter examples of each.

But how are we to respond when it seems like the bad and evil– the darkness– seems overwhelming?

John is going to address this issue that his readers and we wrestle with on a regular basis.

To prepare read 1 John 1:5-2:2 and try to discern what John is telling his readers. This is particularly relevant in light of the recent tragedies in Dallas and Nice.

Looking forward to Sunday!

 

Grace and peace,

Doug
