Ehud: Weakness Made Strong

March 12, 2017 Preacher: Rich Lanning Series: Judges

Scripture: Judges 3:12–3:30

Ehud: Weakness Made Strong

Judges 3:12 - 30

March 12, 2017

 

Introduction:

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?
