Throughout Judges, when Israel ‘cried out’ to the Lord, it doesn’t necessarily mean they cried out form repentance. Yet God was faithful to deliver them from the oppression He had brought upon them.
1. God’s wrath expressed in consequences for sin shows His steadfast love that will not allow His people to remain in sin.
2. God has compassion on His people because He is faithful to His covenant promises.
3. Christmas is the fulfillment of all God’s promises, from Genesis 3 to Revelation 21, and is a gift beyond our full comprehension.
