Monty Simao 2014Sermon Notes

Date: 05/17/2015

Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor

Series: Judges

Key Text: Judges 4-5

Description:  The story of Deborah and Barak and God’s deliverance through the hand of the woman Jael may be one of the most disturbing accounts of treachery recorded in the Bible and yet God delivers His people through these shocking events. In this account God calls an unfaithful general, Sisera, through the prophetess, Deborah, who ruled the people.  Because of his unfaithfulness, God delivers their enemy to the hands of a foreign (and pagan) woman named Jael who brutally murders the enemy general by smashing a tent spike through his head with a hammer.  The Bible celebrates her deed.

Key Text: Judges 3:31

Description:  Shamgar is the judge of obscurity.  By all accounts he is an ordinary farmer whom God uses in an extraordinary way.  No one celebrates the normal and the ordinary but the Bible is full of ordinary folks living an ordinary life.  God calls us to serve in our normal callings and nowhere is this seen more clearly than in the callings of wife and mother.
