The key verse for Judges is found in chapter 17 verse six. It was a commentary on the fact that in Israel everyone did what was right in his own eyes. That philosophy led to trouble for Israel, but a few leaders allowed God to use them. That brought rest to the land. Will we let God use us?

Acts is a history of the church - its early beginnings. One of the questions asked of those who watched the Lord Jesus ascending into glory was, "Why do you stand gazing into heaven?"

Are you one of the main characters?

The Bible explains in Hebrews 10:17 that "In the volume of the Book, it is written of Me." The offerings we read about in Leviticus speak of our Savior.

In Exodus we see the hand of God moving on behalf of His people to free them from slavery and oppression. He intervenes for them against the most powerful nation at the time. This happens on His timeline, not theirs or Moses'. Today, believers can count on His presence and intervention in their lives also.
