Ehud: Weakness Made Strong
Judges 3:12 - 30
March 12, 2017
I. Is Ehud guilty of an immoral act of terrorism? Judges 3:12-14, 19-22; Deuteronomy 2:9
II. A punishment that fits the crime. Judges 3:17-25
III. Like Othniel, Ehud is a surprising savior. Judges 3:15; 1 Corinthians 1:27; 2 Corinthians 12:8-10
IV. 80 years of peace. Judges 3:30; Romans 14:7; Hebrews 4:9-11
Questions for reflection:
- One of the themes of Judges is that the punishment fits the crime. How do we see this principle played out at the cross?
- Are there ways that you feel inadequate or weak? How does Ehud's story show the truth that "God's power is made perfect in weakness?"
- What is one takeaway for you from this sermon?
