June 2, 2013 – Judges 3 – In Testing

Today’s passage: Judges 3:1-4

Pop quizzes, possibly the most dreaded of all forms of tests, are effective in allowing us to learn just how prepared we really are. When was the last time you experienced a pop quiz? What about ones from the Lord? Why does the Lord test us? What does the Lord hope to achieve through testing and trials?

We find plenty of examples through Scripture. Here, we focus on Israel’s test of character and trust in the Lord as they look towards taking the land God has given to them. As frustrating as tests are, this message speaks of how tests serve great purposes for teaching and training the people of the Lord.
