Judges - 1

follow me, because

Judges 3:27-31 (JDV)

Judges 3:27 After he arrived, he sounded the ram’s horn throughout the hill country of Ephraim. The Israelites came down with him from the hill country, and he was in front.
Judges 3:28 He told them, “Follow me, because Yahveh has handed over your enemies, the Moabites, to you.” So they followed him, captured the fords of the Jordan leading to Moab, and did not allow anyone to cross over.
Judges 3:29 At that time they struck down about ten thousand Moabites, all big and capable men. Not one of them escaped.
Judges 3:30 Moab became subject to Israel that day, and the land had peace for eighty years.
Judges 3:31 After Ehud, Shamgar son of Anath became judge. He also delivered Israel, striking down six hundred Philistines with a goad.

follow me, because

Ehud could be confident that God had handed over the enemy because he had experienced it in his own dealing with Eglon. His success solidified his calling as a leader. None of us should presume to lead God’s people until we have a testimony of how God has personally rescued us. This testimony now becomes a rallying point for others.

Lord, rescue us, and make us leaders in our community.
