Whenever the LORD raised up a judge for them, he was with the judge and saved them out of the hands of their enemies as long as the judge lived; for the LORD relented because of their groaning under those who oppressed and afflicted them. But when the judge died, the people returned to ways even more corrupt than those of their ancestors, following other gods and serving and worshiping them. They refused to give up their evil practices and stubborn ways.

– Judges 2:18-19 (NIV)

Today’s commentary
by Dave Whitehead, Senior Pastor, GraceNYC.org

Judges is a book that challenges us; for it tells the story that mankind has rebelled against the Lord and His ways. It seems that we keep wanting to live without God, but that’s not the end of the story. In the midst of seeking our own ways, God came to offer us a new heart in Jesus Christ. God’s love is beyond compare, for He saved us while we were yet sinners.
