The Unfamiliar Judges: Conclusion

While I was reading through Judges, I noticed that animals are used for symbols and by digging deeper into the scripture and Googling stuff, I found that ordinary peopled used ordinary thing to do extraordinary things. Like Samson! He did some messed up things even while he was serving God and God forgave him. He married people that he wasn't suppose to and when when he was tied up and trapped in his sin, God gave him last chance and he ended up killing himself to finish the work he was called to do. The people in the bible where not out of the ordinary, but God still used them. Time and time again, God demonstrates his love for us, killing his son being the biggest example. "God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us." (Romans 5:8) And God is and always will be the same! God used ordinary people 1,000's of years ago and he still does today. I think that message is said time and time again in Judges.  

In him we were also chosen, having been predestined according to the plan of him who works out everything in conformity with the purpose of his will,  in order that we, who were the first to hope in Christ, might be for the praise of his glory.
Ephesians 1:11-12
