Picture a world where people live according to their own personal standards, where believers can’t seem to agree, and where people are trapped in every kind of sin. Sound familiar? While this list hits close to home, these issues are found in the book of Judges. And it’s during times like these where God is searching for those who are ready, willing, and available to confront the enemy. Part of Dr. Warren W. Wiersbe’s best-selling “BE” commentary series, BE Available has now been updated with study questions and a new introduction by Ken Baugh. A respected pastor and Bible teacher, Dr. Wiersbe shares that God’s kingdom advances through those who are available to Him. Based on the book of Judges, this study encourages us to stand for what’s right, and step into what God is doing in our world.
"In those days there was no king in Israel; every man did that which was right in his own eyes." Judges 21:25
Centuries have come and gone since those words of Scripture were written, but our self-centered, pleasure-minded human race has never seemed to learn the lessons of history. Philosopher George Santayana was right when he said, "Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it."
Today's world and the world of the Judges are similar in many ways. Greed. Sexual immorality. Disregard for moral absolutes. Even God's people can't seem to work together.
But Warren Wiersbe reminds us through this study that here and there God is raising up men and women who believe Him, confront the enemy, and win the victory.
The challenge of the Book of Judges is: be available No matter how dark the day, God can still work through people who will trust His word, yield to His spirit, and do His bidding.
