CURRENT SERIES – My Throne, My Kingdom … a study in the Book of Judges.
What does a community that has rejected authority look like? Who do they listen to and how do they determine what is right from what is wrong? The answer is found in personal promotion. We become our own authority and rely on our own instincts and belief systems. We become our own kings.
After Israel had been liberated from slavery, crossed the Jordan and took the land they were left with a leadership crisis. Moses and Joshua were dead and everyone began to do what was right in their own eyes. God would raise up dynamic leaders, one after another, but still this newly formed nation returned to their own desires abandoning God. Without a king they would fill this void with whatever appealed to them most.
In a world that promotes “self” as the ultimate authority, we are left with a gaping cultural hole that we attempt to fill with materialism, hedonism and vanity. Without a king we self promote ourselves to the ultimate position of authority. This has left our culture and our churches empty and in despair. But there is hope. God has sent his Son to fill our void. We have a name that we can follow and a king who will rule with benevolent authority.
