The Rise and Fall of a Mighty Warrior

Judges 6-8

“Few of us will get the chance to be tempted by the status of kingship that Gideon was tempted by, but we are all in danger of being seduced by wealth and power. There are unexpected spiritual crises facing many Christians in later life, often during the so-called empty-nest years.  

Many, having done ministry for years and raised their children have started to believe that they deserve to sit back and put their feet up, give church and service a break to spend more time with the 6 S’s: sand, sun, skis, soccer, second-homes and Sunday papers.  But don’t forget you are being watched. 

If the next generation see us opting out they will draw the inevitable conclusion that faith is not for life.  Instead, we should see every new phase of life as the maternity word for birth into a whole new and different realm of service.”
