Under Gods Command

Last Chapter and Verse of Judges

Read Judges 21:25 In those days Israel had no King; everyone did as he saw fit.

During the time of the judges, the people of Israel experienced trouble because everyone became his own authority and acted on his own opinions of right and wrong.  This produced unspeakable results.  Our world is similar.  Individuals, groups, and societies have made themselves the finial authorities without reference to God.  When people selfishly satisfy their personal desires at all cost, everyone pays the price.

It is the ultimate heroic act to submit all our plans, desires, and motives to God.  Men like Gideon, Jephthah, and Sampson are known for their heroism in battle.  But their personal lives were far from heroic.

Lets Bring it Home:  To be truly heroic, we must go into battle each day in our home, job, church, and society to make God’s Kingdom a reality.  Our weapons are the standards, morals, truth, and convictions we receive from God’s Word.  We will lose the battle if we gather the spoils of earthly treasures rather than seeking the treasures of heaven.
