“What God Wants”

Judges 7:1-8

Rev. Tyler Dirks



Sermon Outline:

  1. Honesty
  2. First Love Affection
  3. Weakness

Reflection Questions:

  1. How have you experienced the freedom of being honest about the fact that you’re scared, while simultaneously experiencing the freedom of not being dominated and defined by fear?
  2. Ponder the breadth and depth of this motif (being honest about fear, but not dominated by fear) in Scripture (e.g. Joseph, son of Jacob; Moses; Ruth; King David; Esther; Daniel; etc.).
  3. What is your favorite story of wholehearted love and joy in the Bible? …Are there robust themes of dying to self and God’s power perfected through weakness in that story?
  4. Undoubtedly you invest a lot of time thinking about what you want. Take 10 minutes to rigorously ponder the question, “What does God want?”
