The Right Woman for the Job: Deborah

Flawed Heroes Series Gfx_App Wide
This past weekend at Eastbrook we continued our “Flawed Heroes” series based on the book of Judges by looking at a series of unlikely heroes from Judges 4-5. Deborah looms large as the most respectable character in the entire book. Barak, although a reluctant deliverer, is used by God. Jael, a foreigner with no standing in society, finds glory as God delivers the enemy into her hands. Take a look with me at three unlikely heroes and consider whether God might not want to take ordinary people like you and me to make unlikely heroes of us.

You can watch the message here, following along with the outline below. You can also follow the entire series at our web-site, through the Eastbrook app, or through our audio podcast.
