Sunday School Lesson 310 God Calls Gideon

Lesson: 310 Lesson Name: God's Call to Gideon
Theme: God's Wonderful Ways

Reading: Judges 6:1-40

Memory Verse: I Cor. 1:27
Memory Verse Text: God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise.

Point 1: Even after the great deliverance led by Barak and Deborah, the people returned to their old ways; they forgot so quickly and fell into the same traps.  The cost of their sin this time was seven years of serving the Midianites.
Point 2: God sent a special messenger, an angel, to Gideon; at the time, Gideon was seeking to provide food for God's people.  God saw him and knew his burden before it was even expressed (Judges 6:13).  God now encouraged and urged Gideon forward, promising that His power and presence would be with him.
Point 3: At first, Gideon objected and tried to excuse himself, but then he asked for a sign (as though that was better than a promise from God!)  God demonstrated His power with fire from the rock.
Point 4: God appeared to Gideon again that night and told him to cut down the tree grove for Baal and build an altar to the LORD.  One of the Ten Commandments was/is, "Thou shalt have no other gods before Me."  Later, the Spirit of the Lord came upon Gideon for a specific purpose and he blew a trumpet in the land (Judges 6:34).
