The three main characters in the book of 1 Samuel are Samuel, King Saul, and King David.  But the book opens with it's theme proclaimed through the trials of Hannah, Samuel's mother.  And before we even get to the big three, a lesson on parenting and leadership emerges that cannot be ignored!  In the midst of weak-willed parenting and leadership, God works in and through the mess to accomplish His will!  Let's learn... Take heart... be encouraged... and never lose hope!  God can work in the midst of our mess as well!

Ruth is the story of the grace and redemption of our God with skin on.  God is spoken from the lips of the characters in this story, but never by the narrator and story teller.  It shows us that God is intensely involved in the circumstances of both the mundane and the messy... even though we may FEEL like he is distant.

Judges 21:25 "Every man did that which was right in his own eyes."  This statement describes our own culture of moral relativism.  How are God's chosen people to walk in such a culture?  Well for one, know and avoid the D CYCLE!

The Israelites had won the war for the promised land, but there were still battles to fight and win.  There was still some clean up to do.  But instead of pursuing and obeying their call to their uniqueness and their unique God, the Israelites were drawn to the worldview and ways of the people and the nations they had conquered.  Their temptations are immensely relevant to the church of Jesus Christ today!

Whose side is God on?  That is what Joshua asked the Angel of the Lord.  The Angel's answer astounds us and makes us think.  The question is not really whose side God is on... but whose side we are on.

Moses died.  Joshua is now appointed as God's leader.  Why him?  What does it really take to lead?  Be inspired... not by Joshua, but by Joshua's God, who commands His people to be strong and courageous... and then makes them so! RAK CHASAK AMATS!

LISTEN!! Life or death are the consequences of the purpose for which you live!  Live accurately!  Live reality!  Don't live a fantasy!  Don't miss the mark!  It's not impossible to live out the reality of the one true purpose for your existence!  God has opened the way to our purpose for life!  The words of Moses in Deuteronomy speak loud and clear to us today!  Listen!

God's heart is to give and forgive, man's heart is... not.  Numbers shows us the unbelief of the people of Israel contrasted with God's heart to bless!  Look at the heart of God and be amazed.

Do you like reading manuals?  Leviticus is like the worship manual for the Mosaic Covenant.  How does a Holy God live in proximity to an Unholy people?  Answer?  Leviticus.  But beyond the directions of a manual, Leviticus also must be viewed relationally, like a marriage between God and His chosen people.  So what is the point of this detailed and difficult book?
