The Story of God: Right in Their Own Eyes

Judges

God has heard the cry of the Hebrews in Egypt and saved them with a powerful hand.  He gave them the way he created them to live, he put up with their distrust and whining, and when they finally learned to take him at his word he went before them and gave them the promised land, a home!  In Judges, though, we find that Israel compromised again, not driving out all the people of the land like he asked.  And just as he had warned the gods these people served became a distraction and snare for Israel.  They began a cycle of forsaking God, suffering the consequences, and crying out for deliverance, yet never truly changing.  We look at how we also easily fall into the same cycle and let this story be a sober warning of life lived apart from God, and an encouraging reminder of the great grace and love of God for us!
