A Reminder of God’s Help

Judges 2:1 KJV 1900
And an angel of the Lord came up from Gilgal to Bochim, and said, I made you to go up out of Egypt, and have brought you unto the land which I sware unto your fathers; and I said, I will never break my covenant with you.

A Reminder of God’s Promises

Judges 2:1 KJV 1900
And an angel of the Lord came up from Gilgal to Bochim, and said, I made you to go up out of Egypt, and have brought you unto the land which I sware unto your fathers; and I said, I will never break my covenant with you.

A Reminder of God’s Commands

Judges 2:2 KJV 1900
And ye shall make no league with the inhabitants of this land; ye shall throw down their altars: but ye have not obeyed my voice: why have ye done this?

A Reminder of God’s Warning

Judges 2:3 KJV 1900
Wherefore I also said, I will not drive them out from before you; but they shall be as thorns in your sides, and their gods shall be a snare unto you.

A Response to God’s Message

Judges 2:4–5 KJV 1900
And it came to pass, when the angel of the Lord spake these words unto all the children of Israel, that the people lifted up their voice, and wept. And they called the name of that place Bochim: and they sacrificed there unto the Lord.

Conclusion

The angel of the Lord came to the people and reminded them of all that God had said and did. The people realized that they had not given God the love and service he required and deserved. They realized that they had not shown their gratefulness to a God that had worked so much on their behalf and promised them so much.
Upon being confronted with their sin of idolatry they wept and the sacrificed; both of which are a sign of repentance. They realized their wrong and repented and sought to get it right with God.

Application

How do you respond when confronted with what God has said? How do you respond when you are confronted with your sin? How do you respond when the commands of God are brought to your attention? How do you respond when you realize you have fallen short of God’s command?
