Bring on Judges!
Judges 1 After the death of Joshua, the people of Israel inquired of the LORD, "Who shall go up first for us against the Canaanites, to fight against them?"...
think about it.

All through the month of October, we're going to be in the Book of Judges. This is one of my favorite Books and God shows me more and more each time I read it. So I encourage you to make the most out of the time we spend together in this amazing Book this month and to listen to Dr. Kroll's messages on Judges on Back to the Bible. You won't be disappointed.
Judges follows immediately on the heels of the Book of Joshua which ends with the Israelites vowing to follow and serve the Lord and then Joshua's death (see Joshua chapter 24). So as Judges begins, we see Judah and Simeon stepping to the forefront in Joshua's absence. The people ask the Lord who should go up against the Canaanites and He responds "'Judah shall go up; behold, I have given the land into his hand.'"
What does Judges 1 show us about the importance of following the Lord in all things? Tami W.
