The Bible Experiment – Week Ten – Wednesday

Today we read Gideon’s story.  I may end up using some of it on Sunday so for now I’ll just post one of my favorite verses:

“Go in the strength you have…

And then:

Am I not sending you?” Judges 6:14

God calls folks to go with what they’ve available. When you look at the story you quickly find that Gideon didn’t feel equipped. He felt weak and frightened but God sent him anyway. He does the same for us. God isn’t in the business of recruiting mighty warriors. Instead he makes heroes out of those who move with him. We need Gideon to be a punk. The same God who strengthened Gideon can strengthen us.

Yalak!
