We will live this life as conquerors or as the conquered.
If a major movie studio and a highly capable director with several million dollars to spare would ever pick up the book of Judges, we would have one of the most epic movies of all times. For in the book of Judges are stories of battle, of good triumphing over evil, of intrigue and suspense, of family struggle, of love and betrayal, and of the type of person God loves to use in His Kingdom.
All of us will either live this life as conquerors through Christ, or as those who have been conquered by the things of this world. Judges 1–8 gives us a great glimpse of how to live a life of victory, and that the greatest Judge of all victory is Jesus.
