The book of Judges is the story of the Israelites before they had a king. It is a story of a people living in a repeating cycle. They worship idols, God brings distress upon them, they repent and call out to him for deliverance. God delivers them. They go back tot he worship of idols.
That might sound familiar to you. Many Christians live the same way. They ignore God and do their own thing. Things go bad. They repent and ask God to deliver them. He does. The go back to their self centered life.
God wants us to live in continual fellowship with him. That is why he reconciled himself to us in Christ. That is why he sent the Holy Spirit to dwell in us. "If we live by the Spirit, let us also keep in step with the Spirit". Galatians 5:25. "Therefore, as you received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk in him." Colossians 2:6.
