10 Alive Recap

Friends,

Sunday we continued our series on Gideon with a discussion of Judges 6:11-27.

1) What was the first thing Gideon did when when he was called by God?

Gideon complained. He said, “If God is with us why has all this happened to us?” We agreed that like Gideon we can be self focused. We don’t like to suffer and are quick to ask God “Where were you?” When we are focused on ourselves we miss the fact that God has never left us. And that He is trying to teach us in the midst of our struggle. That is not to say that God causes our suffering. However, nothing happens to us outside of His will and He is using every circumstance to conform us to the image of His Son.

2) How does God respond to Gideon?

God is loving and patient. He chooses to use this as a ‘teachable moment.’

God could wipe the Midianites out in an instant but chooses to work through Gideon. God wants to do more than rescue His people — He wants to save them.

Next week Judges 6:27-35. Consider the following questions:

1) Why did God demand Gideon tear down the idol?

2) Why did Gideon act at night?

See you Sunday.

John
