Scripture: Judges 3:7–3:11
Judges 3:7 - 11
March 5, 2017
I. Cushan-Rishathaim a picture of sin's tyranny. Judges 3:7-8
II. "The people of Israel cry out to the LORD." Judges 3:9a
III. Othniel is a surprising candidate to serve as a deliverer. Judges 3:9, Joshua 14:6
IV. Victory comes through the empowerment of God's Holy Spirit. Judges 3:10, Ephesians 5:16
Questions for reflection:
- What does the passage help us to appreciate about the nature of sin's tyranny over us?
- Why is it important that Israel was ethnically diverse in this period? How is this a picture of what God intends for His church?
- How does this passage remind us of our need for the infilling of the Holy Spirit?
