You Have a Mighty Source - The Exodus
Through the course of the year, we are working together to learn the story of the Bible and that we have a mighty source in God and His word. This message in our series brings us to the story of Joshua, Moses’ assistant and successor – God’s appointed warrior, following the Lord’s leadership and taking the children of Israel into their Promised Land inheritance. Through the narrative, we learn it takes strength and courage to obey the Lord’s commands and we watch the walls of Jericho miraculously fall with only a shout. We learn God’s correlation between His Covenant people and the land He promised to them and that fierce battles can rage even in the midst of miracles. The passage of time shifts the story line as Judges emerge over the Israelites, saving them from manifold enemies. Even so, there is inconsistency in the hearts of God’s people. As in the day of Joshua and Judges, it takes strength and courage to obey the Lord and possess our inheritance.
