Chestnut Ridge Church
Timeline–Part 7
We all love stories. They make us feel like we are a part of something bigger than ourselves. They can stir the imagination and engage the heart. They motivate us, influence us, and have the unique ability to build connections. So, it’s no wonder that the Bible is the most beloved book of all time! In this series, Timeline, we’ll explore the stories that span 4,000 years of biblical history, from Genesis to Malachi. As we focus on some of the most beloved stores in the Old Testament, we’ll discover that in every story the overarching theme is God’s desire to have a relationship with us.

Problem | We are sometimes afraid to do what God would have us do
Solution | If God is with us, we do not need to be afraid
Today's Takeaway // If God is with us, we do not need to be afraid
With God on our side, the forces that are marshaled against us amount to nothing. They cannot prevail; they too can only work for our good. –Fitzmyer, J. A.
The Old Testament’s events that are recorded in the Book of Judges, specifically in chapters 6 through 8, clearly are divinely designed to be a forewarning about the end-times conflict that Israel will have with her Arab enemies, as well as a forewarning about the One who will be Israel’s end-times Deliverer/Savior. –Nadine Drayton-Keen
