Description: After Jephthah’s defeat of the Ammonites and the wicked sacrifice of his own daughter, his troubles are not over. He is rebuked by the Ephraimites and ends up fighting against them and over 40,000 Ephraimites die. Israelite killing Israelite.
With all of the sinfulness and tragedy in the life of Jephthah, the book of Judges is not the only place we see mention of his name. Jephthah surprisingly is listed in the “Hall of Faith” in Hebrews 11. We explore how Jephthah might have “made the cut”.
Description: There are many thousands of ‘Born Again’ Christians who lack confidence in their salvation. The expression, ‘eternal security’ is beyond their reach. This position of doubt can only rob them of peace and joy, and detract from their witness to the unsaved.
Description: Peter informs his Christian readers to be on the alert for the “adversary, the roaring lion.” The roaring of the lion’s jaws is the power of suffering to destroy our faith. Therefore Peter has to remind his Christian readers, “resist him, firm in your faith.”
Description: No words of Scripture “… hold within themselves a deeper mystery than this simple formula of the Christian life, ‘in Christ‘” (J. Gordon). This message takes a quick look at the believers’ faith and walk in Christ. Our challenge remains to reproduce in our lives the righteousness which is already ours in Christ.
