8. Judges Summary Verse

The book of Judges reveals the ugly result of not heeding the LORD's warnings about idolatry and of not following His Word. It recounts the cycle of history, both in the period of the Judges and in our lives still today. From prosperity to idolatry, from idolatry to judgment, from judgment to repentance, from repentance to deliverance. The Judges played an important role in this cycle. Our summary verse comes from Judges 2:16-17: “Nevertheless, the LORD raised up judges who delivered them out of the hand of those who plundered them. Yet they would not listen to their judges, but they played the harlot with other gods, and bowed down to them. They turned quickly from the way in which their fathers walked, in obeying the commandments of the LORD; they did not do so.” (NKJV). There is much for us to learn from this account!

7. Joshua Summary Verse

The book of Joshua picks up following the death of Moses and describes the fulfillment of the LORD's promise to Abraham as He delivers the land of Canaan into the hands of Joshua and the nation of Israel. Our summary verse is Joshua 1:9: "Be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, for the LORD your God is with you wherever you go" (ESV). The LORD is strong and mighty and keeps His promises. We need not fear with Him at our side.

Christian Parenting - The Foundation

In this mini series on Christian parenting we will dig into God's Word for direction on Christian parenting. This episode will present an overview of the series which will include discussions on Christian Instruction, Discipline, the Relation between the Husband and the Wife, and teaching your children responsibility. We will also highlight some of the problems we face in our culture because of incorrect views of family and children and see that children are not ours, but the LORD's, who loves them more than we do! We are simply stewards of these children, who are gifts from God to be nurtured and raised for His glory.

6. Deuteronomy Summary Verse

Deuteronomy is a review of God's work in the lives of the Children of Israel and was preparing them for the dangers that would be in front of them as they entered the promised land. Our verse is Deuteronomy 6:5: "You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your strength” (NKJV). Moses directs the people to the importance of following the LORD, and to trust in the promise of the coming Savior, who would be like Moses, but greater than Moses. Don't forget what the LORD has done and has promised to do for you!

5. Numbers Summary Verse

The book of Numbers records the account of the Children of Israel and the 40 years they spent in the wilderness. Our summary verse is Numbers 23:19: “God is not a man, that He should lie, Nor a son of man, that He should repent. Has He said, and will He not do? Or has He spoken, and will He not make it good?” (NKJV). This book reminds us of the faithfulness of God as He provided for, led and protected His people during all these years even though they were not faithful.

4. Leviticus Summary Verse

In our summary of Leviticus we will look at the different types of Law God gave His Old Testament people including the Moral, Civil and Ceremonial. Our verse is Leviticus 19:8: "You shall not take vengeance, nor bear any grudge against the children of your people, but you shall love your neighbor as yourself: I am the LORD” (NKJV). God's Law is good, because it reveals His will and what is good for us and all society. But only Jesus has kept it perfectly and He has done that our our substitute.

3. Exodus Summary Verse

In our summary of Exodus we are reminded of God's care and protection, and His love of His people motivates them to love and trust in Him. Our verse is: "I am the LORD your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage. You shall have no other gods before Me” (Exodus 20:2-3 NKJV). We will see His deliverance and His care for His people.
