Christians Be Like…Joshua (PM)

Duration:26 mins 12 secs
Christians Be Like...Joshua

3 Places = 3 Conditions...
  • Egypt = slavery
  • Wilderness = freedom from Pharaoh but still enslaved to fear.
  • Canaan = Victory
In Canaan...
  • We are more than conquerors. Romans 8:37
  • We don't lose heart. 2 Corinthians 4:16
  • We are free of anxiety. Philippians 4:6
The Wilderness...
  • The wilderness represents the defeated Christian life.
  • Far too often in the church we behave more like the 10 spies than we do Joshua and Caleb.
  • You can tell me when you were baptized...but you can't tell me the last time you defeated a temptation in your life or experienced an answered prayer.
Joshua 1:2
  • It is time to move.
  • If we are followers of Jesus Christ, he has also given us our salvation, we just have to arise and go over whatever our Jordan is.
Joshua 1:3-9...two things...
  1. A Promised Reality
  2. A Call to Action
    • 2 Corinthians 5:17-18
3 Things God makes clear...
  1. We must meditate on the word.
  2. We will not be successful until we do what the word says.
  3. We can't allow fear to control us because God is with us.
Inheritance?
  • The word is used nearly 60 times in the book of Joshua.
  • You already have everything you need to be everything God desires.
  • Ephesians 1:11
Why Worry???
  1. We don't know about our inheritance.
  2. We don't believe in our inheritance.

Wilderness Vs. Canaan...

 Wiilderness  Canaan
 I am weak, and I will always be weak.  I am weak, and I will am getting stronger.
 I am a victim of my environment.  I am victorious in spite of my surroundings.
 The days are difficult, I will never get through this.  God will get me through this.
