Judges 7:24 – 8:32
The one big idea:
As Christians, we must never forget that God stands behind every achievement in our vocation and our personal holiness.
1. I must never let my concern for status or my pursuit of security undermine the unity and energy of the church.
2. Every failure to recognize God as the source of our being and the fount that enables our good works is due to the sin of pride.
3. No amount of human folly can ever undo God’s promise of eternal life to His elect.
Luke 22:31-34 and John 13:33-37
1. Satan Demands to Test Us
2. Weaknesses that led to Peter’s failure:
a. His ignorance
b. Overconfidence in himself
c. Neglect of spiritual resources
3. Jesus Intercedes for Us
