Outline of Judges 2 - Does it apply to You in your relationship with the Lord?

Read over Judges 2 and then look at this little outline is there any comparisons to the way we treat God today?

1. They Settled for less than God's best by compromising and giving God second place in their lives.
2. As a result they were Snared by the gods of the nations around them (2:2-3).
3. This led them to Serve those gods (2:10-13).
4. They experienced the Severe disciplining hand of God (2:14-15).
5. But God provided Salvation and deliverance (2:16).
6. But they continued in Self-will, leaving God out of their lives (2:17-19).

How does this happen? We learn four basic ways that led the people away from God and these apply very much to us today. At the same time we can see four things about the Character of God as well.

1. They forgot what the Lord had done (2:6-10).
2. They forgot what the Lord had said (2:11-13).
3. They forfeited what the Lord had promise (2:14-15)
4. They failed to learn from what the Lord did (2:16-23).

But in spite of that, look at the Character of God:
1. His faithfulness to them  (2:15, 2 Timothy 2:13).
2. His Righteousness discipline with them (2:15-16, Hebrews 12:5-11).
3. His Compassion to His people (2:16-19).
4. His Patience and Perseverance (2:19-23).
