Sermon Titbits

We learned earlier that in order to overcome life’s challenges, there are certain things we must do. These include – Looking unto Jesus, focusing on our goal, seeking for help, enduring the pain, encouraging ourselves, being at peace and depending on God’s grace. Yet another thing we can do as we seek to overcome the enemy is to lean on the Everlasting Arms of our Heavenly Father. One of the fundamental facts of life is that we all pass through diverse difficulties and we don’t always have the capacity to help ourselves except if we depend on God.

A challenge is a difficulty, obstacle, or problem that prevents a person from reaching his or her goal. There are many challenges that confront us in life but Jesus confirms to us that with Him we can overcome (Jn. 16:33). The Bible also encourages us to rejoice in tribulations because trials are allowed by God to develop patience in us (Js. 1: 2 – 4). Challenges come to different people in different ways and even though we may not be able to determine the type of trial we will experience, we can always depend on God to overcome.

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. Under Moses the children of Israel lived and wandered in the wilderness for forty years; under Joshua it was a new day and a new beginning. The season of wandering was over. 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:
1. Crossing the River Jordan at a time when it overflowed its banks
2. How will Joshua lead more than two million people with a track record of anger and rebellion against God and Moses?

The Bible says in II Cor. 4: 8 – 9 that “we are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed.” To be caged means to be barred in a room or fenced enclosure as in a prison. A prison is a place of confinement or captivity and a prisoner is a person deprived of liberty and kept under involuntary restraint, confinement, or custody. Caged times are terrifying moments; times you feel stranded or frustrated, times of fear, anxiety, trouble, weariness, or confusion.

To win means to be victorious or to be successful. It also means to overcome or to prevail in a contest. A winner is a victor. There is usually more than one person in a contest, for example athletics, car racing, horse racing, or swimming. Life itself is a race (I Cor. 9: 24 – 27). In order to win a race, contestants must have certain characteristics:  

1. Discipline (Self Control): Discipline is being able to exercise restraint in order to accomplish a set goal. Paul said “I keep under my body and bring it into subjection” (I Cor. 9: 27). A good athlete must be disciplined in order to win.

Honor means high respect, glory, credit, reputation, or a good name. It is an adherence to what is right or to a conventional standard of conduct. There are many things we must do in order to be honored by God.

1. Obedience: To be honored by God, we must live a life that pleases God and walk in obedience before Him. God honored Ruth because of her obedience to Naomi, her mother-in-law. God still expects us to live a life of obedience today.

This message will be discussed under four areas: the nature of God, the signs of the times, my responsibilities and finally, God’s reward.  

1. The Nature of God: The Bible says in Rom. 11:33 that God is rich in wisdom and knowledge and His judgments are unsearchable. His ways are past finding out and of Him, and through Him and to Him are all things. All things are naked and opened unto His eyes (Heb. 4:13). The Bible says that it is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God (Heb. 10: 31) and that our God is a Consuming fire (Heb. 12:29). God is Holy (I Pet. 1: 15-16) and He cannot behold iniquity (Hab. 1:13). His judgment is final (Heb. 9:27)

In Gen. 2: 18 God told Adam not to eat of the tree of good and evil and that he will surely die the day he eats of it.  It wasn’t a physical but a spiritual death. But Jesus was a worthy sacrifice (1 Pet.1: 18-21).  Today we are saved, and as Jesus said to Thomas when he doubted His resurrection, “we are blessed for believing” (John 20:29).

In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth, and everything therein. In God’s creation account, we discover that the creation was a corporate effort between the Godhead – God the Father, God the Son and God the Spirit. Just before the end of the early creation of the world, God introduced man with the sole purpose of taking care of His creatures (Genesis 1:26, 2:19-20). This is emphasized in Psalm 115:16 – “The heaven, even the heavens, are the Lord’s, but the earth He has given to the children of men”.
