Sermon Titbits

Entries for May 2013

The Bible tells us in Matt 21: 12-17 that Jesus drove the money changers and those buying and selling in the temple of God. Immediately those that came in sick and blind were healed, and they began to cry hosanna to Jesus. So you might say or ask, “I don’t buy and sell, I am not a money changer, how does this apply to me?” We are reminded that in God’s house there should be perfect praise and miracles.

After the death of Moses, God had to choose another person to lead the children of Israel from the wilderness into the Promised Land. That mantle of leadership fell upon Joshua.

Moses had to die before Joshua could lead the people into the Promised Land. Joshua led a new generation of Israelites into their inheritance but there were two problems:

2. How will Joshua lead more than two million people with a track record of anger and rebellion against God and Moses?
