“Love should never be absent from our proclamation of the truth. But, there are times when love looks tougher. As Christians we can’t be afraid to call certain things wrong, and call people to the truth of the Gospel.”
“Scripture is a mirror that shows you your soul. If there is a command, obey it. If there is an example, follow it. If there is a warning, heed it. If there is a promise, believe it. If there’s wisdom, apply it. If there’s a sin, avoid it. If you haven’t avoided it, repent and confess, and move on.”
In the end, the book of Judges is about a God of mercy and long-suffering, who is relentlessly working in and through us despite our resistance to his purposes. For the time in which we live, we need what this book has to teach us.
