Like the children of Israel in Joshua’s time we face challenges every day. Every family has “rivers to cross” and “giants to face”. Obstacles abound in this life. We face physical illnesses, financial hardships, family and relational struggles and the hopelessness of living in a dark and sinful world. The book of Joshua gives very clear examples of strongly trusting God in the face of opposition which leads to victory and examples of sinfully rejecting God’s Word which leads to defeat.
We get to begin 2015 by looking at the book of Joshua together on Sunday mornings. This exciting book has the children of Israel ready to enter the the Promised Land and finally occupy what God had promised them years earlier. The adventurous chapters of this book reveal the people having amazing victories and humbling defeats. Their key to success was knowing God’s Word and trusting His promises.
Plan to join us as we go with Joshua into the Promised Land. We want to remind ourselves of God’s promises and challenge one another to memorize and apply God’s truth. Looking forward to seeing you on the journey.
