Just as sure as God delivered the children of Israel from bondage to experience the fullness of the promised land, He has freed us from the power of sin to live the abundant life in Him. Today’s teaching from Joshua chapter 5 is sure to encourage you to walk in that freedom.
There are some things that are better forgotten. In Philippians 3 the Apostle Paul talks about “forgetting the things that are behind…” But here in Joshua chapter 4 we find that remembering some things are critical to victorious Christian living.
There are a lot of arguments about what faith is and what it is not. But there’s no arguing that in today’s message from Joshua chapter 2, victory requires faith- Bible based faith that is.
There’s a popular saying that goes, “It’s my way or the highway.” That may sound rather egotistical coming from a man or woman, but when God says it, it’s final. We either accept His terms, or we’re on our own. Join us for some insight from the story of Rahab in the book of Joshua.
Today we look at the story of Rahab, who lied in order to protect the spies Joshua sent into the land. Did the ends justify the means? Before you answer, listen in to today’s message.
The truth that obedience to God brings blessing is a key principle in understanding what it means to be a child of God. Failure to understand this and failure to implement it will forfeit God's best in your life. Joshua understood it, and you will too after today’s message.
Today we begin an exciting journey through the book of Joshua. After Moses’ death, Joshua found himself next in line in God’s great ongoing plan. His story is not only an exciting one, it’s an encouraging one as well. Because as we’ll see, the torch has been passed to us as well.
God told the prophet Jeremiah, “Before I formed you in the womb, I knew you; Before you were born, I sanctified you.” And in today’s message God gives Hosea the same message about His love. It’s a perfect love for an imperfect people.
Today’s teaching contains God’s prescription for reconciliation and restoration of our relationship with Him. What God asked Hosea to do is an example to all of us. Open your Bibles to Hosea chapter 6 and follow along.
Today’s message from Hosea chapter 11 continues the theme we started last week, “Patient Love.” It’s the kind of love God has for us, and the kind He expects us to have for others. It’s not always easy, but with God, all things are possible.
Theodore Roosevelt once said: “Nothing in the world is worth having or worth doing unless it means effort, pain, difficulty… I have never in my life envied a human being who led an easy life. I have envied a great many people who led difficult lives and led them well.” The Apostle Paul would agree. In today message we find Paul contending for the faith- not only for himself, but for others. Yes, the Christian life is a fight, so open your bibles to Colossians chapter two and “let’s get ready to rumble!”
Sin is separation. The instant that Adam & Eve sinned, they became separated from God. From before the world began, God had a plan to bring them back to Himself. That’s reconciliation, and that’s the subject of today’s teaching.
On this Father’s Day the passage in John chapter 10 reminds us all of the lesson Jesus gives us about fathers and family: Dads are like shepherds.
Serving God is not for the weak of heart. Don’t believe me? Ask Noah. Ask Moses. Ask Daniel. Ask Stephen. Ask Paul. Today’s message is a sobering one. Service and suffering and inextricably linked.
Have you ever taken a ride with someone who was tired and began to fall asleep at the wheel? That’s a frightening experience. The Psalmist writes in the 121st division of Psalms that God neither slumbers nor sleeps. Today’s message will encourage your heart no matter the circumstances of your life.
