night after night they reveal knowledge.
Watch this video – God’s Story: Gideon
Read Judges 6 & 7.
Review the Cycle of Judges
There’s a whole lot more to the story of Gideon than what we talked about on Sunday. You may want to take the next 2 days, read a chapter a day, and read through Judges 6-7 and then, talk and pray together.
Judges 6: When the Angel of the Lord burned up the basket of food and disappeared, Gideon realized it was God and was afraid and thought he would die. But God called out to Gideon to comfort him. Even though Gideon was a sinner and deserved to die, God didn’t kill him because Gideon was a part of God’s plan to save Israel. Each time God saved Israel he was preparing the way for Jesus to born.
Talk about Gideon tearing down the altar of Baal — would you have the courage to do that?
Judges 7: Talk about how God shows grace to Gideon by showing him over and over that He will give the victory. (fleece, giving the dream to the enemy soldier, sending Gideon into the camp) Have each person share the challenges they are facing. Take time to ask God to help each one.
“In those days there was no king in Israel. Everyone did what was right in his own eyes” (Judges 21:25 ESV)
LESSON 4: CHALLENGED TO GO (continued)
Read John 20:21 again.
Discuss how your family can “Experience It.” Have fun playing a game of Follow the Leader.
Finish up with the “Map It” section.
