Messing Up The Ending

Judges 8:22-35 — Most of us love the story of Gideon and that’s probably because we identify with his struggles. We love the way God ministered to his fears and the way he was used to bring about a marvellous victory. But the sad thing is that Gideon’s story doesn’t end well. He wanted more than God had given him. He took to himself things that weren’t his to have and the results were disastrous. 

In this sermon we are reminded that our legacy is still up for grabs — we can’t rest on our laurels. We need to finish the Christian life well and if we’re going to do that, it matters what we do today.
