Series: A Faithful God for a Faithless People
March 1, 2021 | The Rev. Bryan Biba
Deborah, the only female Judge, encourages the militia leader Barak to lead Israel into battle against the Canaanite commander Sisera, a story that not only teaches us the importance of encouragement, but also the relationship between courage and faith.
Judges isn’t just a tragic depiction of the faithlessness of God’s people. It is at the same time a startling account of the patience and faithfulness of a God who refuses to abandon His people, even when they are at their very worst.
