Jael nailing Sisera’s head to the floor with a tent peg is one of the more gruesome stories in the Bible. But as Deborah and Barak out to defeat Sisera’s army, there’s an important lesson for us – if we don’t trust God, then God will use someone else. The same thing happens in the parables Jesus tells in Matthew 24-25. Those who don’t trust God won’t be part of what God is doing.

Listen to the sermon preached by the Revd Bryce Amner on Sunday 19 November 2017.
