  • Passage: Judges 13:1–13:25

I.   PART ONE: Doing What is Evil in the Sight of the Lord

"Israel as a nation has almost ceased to exist. It’s a terrible thing to find something that’s evil so irresistible that you find yourself turning to it again and again, in spite of all that God has done to rescue you from it. It takes away your dignity, saps your strength, and leaves you hopeless. That’s how Israel is at this point in Judges." — Barry Webb

 II.  PART TWO: Hope for the Hopeless

"We think we need rules, but we need to know God. God does not, and will not, give us a guidebook for every twist and turn, every doubt and decision in our lives. He gives us something much better—he gives us himself." — Tim Keller
