June 8 & 9, 2019

Last year, we began a journey through the beginning of the Bible called Origin Story where we laid the foundation of our faith.  In Season Two, we dive right back into the lives and events of God’s people. Only by learning biblical history can we comprehend the continued faithfulness and provision God made for His followers. Our lives are not small and insignificant because we get to be part of this amazing and epic story.

Why, after the days of Joshua, would Israel fail so miserably?

    • Incomplete Obedience (Judg. 3:1-2, 4-5)
    • They worshipped false gods
    • They married people who didn’t believe in the God of Israel

You can see the five factors that made up the cycle Israel passed through (Judg. 2):

    • Disobedience (Judg. 2:11-12)
    • Bondage (Judg. 2:14)
    • Misery (Judg. 2:15)
    • Deliverance and Rest (Judg. 2:16-18)
    • Compromise (Judg. 2:19)

What happens when a society buys into that style of life? (Judg. 19:23-24)

    • Depravity results in permissiveness
    • Permissiveness leads to rationalization
    • Rationalization encourages rebellion

Parting Question: Aren’t you thankful we have a patient and merciful God? (Lam. 3:22-23) (Heb. 12:5-6)
