Cold is something we have all had some experience with. We know it when we see it, and we sure know it when we feel it. Jesus said something about the cold, He said that as time passes more and more people will become spiritually cold. This week we will explore the subject of “growing cold.”
Seeing the invisible seems to be an oxymoron. In Scripture, this mystery pervades every chapter and verse. However, according to the Scriptures, God is not invisible to us at all, and in fact, as Paul declared at Mars Hill, He is not far from any one of us. So how do we see the invisible God?
The Bible is full of stories about beginning again, starting over, about charting a new course in life. As we consider a new year, we will look at those pivotal times in Scriptures where beginning again made all the difference.
There is a huge difference between a "devotional life" and a Life of Devotion! A life of devotion ministers to Christ, a devotional life ministers to us. This week we look at the importance of knowing and understanding the difference. This Sunday we discuss the hallmarks of a life of devotion.
Sometimes the scenes of Christmas distort the story of Christmas, as ironic as that sounds.Today we look at Christmas in an unconventional way, to prove that there is only one story, of which, Christmas is only a part, and how that the Christmas story is really no more important than your own!
This week we take an interesting look at the story of the incarnation. Truth was, Jesus was not comfortable in this world. Today we look at the implications of Jesus making Himself as comfortable as possible when He came to earth and what we should take away from it in our daily lives.
This week we look at the second part of "The Cursed Thing." This week look at how God illustrates for us a picture of how to deal with the sin in our lives and how we are blessed when we obey!
How could God's chosen people go from winning the victory at Jericho to being defeated at Ai? This week we look at what this part of the story represents in the life of the believer and how our association with the world can stop God from going with us and blessing our lives.
This week, we look at what the walls represent. As Israel stood on the other side of Jordan as a chosen, redeemed people, something already existed, the walls! This was a picture of all the baggage present when we get saved. This week we explore removing the walls and finding the path to victory!
This week we explore why God chose six days to walk around the city, and why not two or three? What could God possibly be teaching the nation of Israel and more importantly us? Today we look at the message God was sending as He commanded the people to march in a orderly, mundane parade for six days!
The Lord told Joshua He had already given him the city, its army, and its king, so the only real question was, how? Today we will begin to look at the steps Joshua takes at the Lords request, to remove the one thing that stood between Joshua and what the Lord had already given him, the walls!
This week we continue to look at those last final steps, before Joshua begins to stare down Jericho. This week we see how God finishes the picture He paints for those who will enter the promise land one day, which ends as one commander stares down another, only one is none other than Jesus Himself
Today we look at an interesting anomaly in the life of Israel, a forty year halt to the practice of circumcision. The big question is why? Today we will look at what it was meant to teach the generation that would enter the promised Land,and their children. We will also look at its message to us!
After the miraculous parting of the waters at the Jordan River, the Lord requires a monument be built. This is meant to be a memorial and reminder to all the generations that will follow. This week we will look at the symbolism and purpose behind it and what it is meant to say to us today.
This week we look at the significance of the Ark of the Covenant resting in the Jordan River as the means for parting the water. Unlike when the waters parted at the Red Sea, now they will part for a people both called and then chosen to enter the promise land. Today we explore this important story.
Today we look at why an entire chapter related to the conquest of Jericho is devoted to Rahab the Harlot. Here we see how Gods plan for the gentiles is intimately woven into Israel's history. Listen as we look at how Rahab, a distant relative of Jesus, is adopted by the Israelites and why it occurs.
This week we begin looking at the story of Jericho. Despite what many think, Jericho was no real challenge for the nation of Israel. With that being said, God imploys a series of almost comical instructions in order for them to take the city. Today we begin looking at the greater meaning of Jericho.
Everyone can relate to a first day on the job! But can you imagine for a moment what that day was like for Joshua? When you think about the job description, who conducted his orientation, and how quickly he is thrown into the fire, it becomes obvious, this was not your typical first day on the job!
This week we look at the moment Moses passes the baton to Joshua, and how he chooses to leave the stage in a graceful and noble way, while leaving a lasting legacy for Joshua to reflect on in the future. Here we take one final look at the man who had the single greatest impact on Joshua's life.
This week we look at the lesson Joshua took away from the plague at the Graves of Lust, which was simple, God's will is that we desire Him more than anything else in this life!
