ANARCHY | Succeeding to Fail

July 09, 2017

Gary Lee Webber

Success is dangerous; it not only tests our faith, it exposes any pride and reveals the truest nature of our character. People throughout history, from politicians to clergy have accomplished amazing victories only to fail at the height of their success. One of the most famous characters in the book of Judges is a man named Gideon. His rise from being an obscure, fearful figure to one of the most successful leaders in Israel’s history is a Sunday school favorite. But we seldom look at the rest of Gideon’s story. In part five of Anarchy, Pastor Gary Lee Webber explores the part of Gideon’s story that is often overlooked, where we see the dangers of success and the secret to overcoming those dangers.
