Where is Jesus?

How does today's Bible story fit into God's greater plan of redemption?

Read Judges 6:11-24.

In Judges 6:16, the Lord answered Gideon’s concerns about being the weakest of his family, “I will be with you, and you will strike down all the Midianites together.” Like Gideon, our salvation completely depends on God. We, like Gideon, face an impossible enemy, sin. Only the blood of Jesus our Redeemer can bring victory for our own lives and help us win others for Christ. In a similar statement, Jesus said to his disciples in giving them the Great Commission, “Behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age” (Matthew 28:20). The Lord was with Gideon to win the battle, and he is with us as well.

Family Discipleship - "Time" in the Home

We are on week 46 which starts on page 305 in the Long Story Short devotional. Below is a snapshot summarizing this week. I encourage you to cover all days with your family, but if life gets the best of you and you are unable, cover the devotionals that best meet your family with where they're at.

  • Day 1: Suffering used to draw us closer to Jesus
  • Day 2: God seeking Gideon while he was hiding
  • Day 3: God's mercy extended to Gideon
  • Day 4: False idols and the true, living God
  • Day 5: The need for Jesus' righteousness

Pray about it! As a family, thank God for the wonderful mercy He showed us in saving Israel through Gideon.

False gods - A Gospel Principle for Parents

Our job is to help our children understand that the greatest war in their lives is not with us or with any other authority. The greatest war is fought inside of them, it is fought for control of their heart; it’s fought for the ruler-ship of their soul. They need a Savior who will fight for them, who will deliver them from the most significant bondage of all, themselves.
