Judges 8:4-17 — Gideon and his men were pushing for final victory over the Midianites and they were growing weak and tired. At two Israelite villages Gideon asked for bread but was refused. In fact, he was told to “go away!”
In this sermon we think about why these people refused to help Gideon and we discover that it is one of the primary reasons why many Christians fail to participate in God’s work today. Many are afraid of losing if they follow hard after Jesus and get involved in what He is doing in this world.
