Gideon may seem like an unlikely hero but to God he was an ideal candidate for ministry. Gideon and his crew of three hundred men with trumpets and clay pots appear surprising victors against the massive Midianite army; however for God they were another opportunity to showcase his strength and power. God takes weak people, meagre resources and unpromising strategies and turns them into something wonderful. From his first face-to-face encounter with the Angel of the Lord to his later struggles with the trappings of success, Gideon challenges us to take our stand for God, to trust his plans, to believe in his promises and to keep our focus. Written with humour and passion, this is an immensely readable and helpful book that will delight those who have discovered the joys of Jeff Lucas' writings before, as well as those who come to it fresh.
How God Commissioned Unexpected People in the Bible and What He Wants to Do with You
Author: John MacArthur
Pubpsher: Thomas Nelson Inc
In the third installment of the Twelve series, readers discover that true success is measured in terms of obedience, humility and faithfulness to God. They faltered. They struggled. At times, they failed. Yet God worked through them in incredible ways to accomplish his purposes. In Twelve Unlikely Heroes, the third installment of Dr. MacArthur's Twelve series (Twelve Ordinary Men, Twelve Extraordinary Women), readers gain new insights into the kind of people God uses, and what it means to be successful in his eyes. Readers receive deep biblical teaching and inspiring life instruction from Bible characters like: Joseph: a slave who saved his country and his family Miriam: the sister who helped shape one of Israel's foremost deliverers Samson: an uncontrollable man whom God empowered and used Jonathan: an heir to a throne he was willing to give up Esther: the woman God used to spare the Jewish people Mark: a coward who was restored and wrote the second gospel Onesimus: a runaway slave who became a minister And more! Twelve Unlikely Heroes highlights this wonderful mystery: that God uses weak, foolish, and broken people to showcase his power, wisdom, and love. He works through those who are humble, contrite, and eager to obey. By God's grace and for his glory, ordinary sinners are unexpectedly transformed into heroes of the faith.
