News B90

Israel, in the book of Judges, was caught on a wild merry-go-round ride swirling between sin, oppression, repentance and redemption. But we aren’t unfamiliar with their ride. We often hop on that crazy adventure of sin ourselves.

However, when the Israelites repented of their sin, God was ready to respond by sending a judge to bring deliverance for his people. Yet, these people were not stellar characters. Each had obvious flaws in heritage, character, or morals.
Why did God use such broken people as deliverers? The answer is because it was never about them. It is all about God and what he can do through people who are willing to be used by him. While we may see ourselves reflected in the story of Israel, it is all about God.
