Do You Watch Your Mouth?

Do You Watch Your Mouth?

We all struggle with the tongue. Maybe you don’t use the really bad words, maybe you don’t even say any words that are unsavory, but you do struggle with your tongue. Words that are used to complain, gossip, slander, express anger, self-pity or annoyance are all ways...

Pursuing Holiness

This is our last day in the book of Joshua! These verses are Joshua´s last speech to the people of Israel. He exhorts the people to abolish idolatry and asks them to serve the Lord. But he reminds them also that, to serve the Lord, they have to be holy. What does this...

Be Strong to Keep God´s Word

Joshua’s story is coming to an end. As he gathers Israel’s leaders, he shares the same words with them that God gave him at the beginning of his leadership: Be strong and courageous, and continue to obey God (Joshua 1:6-9 and 23:6). When they do those things, God will...

God Keeps His Promises

God Keeps His Promises

Think back with me to the time when the people of God were slaves in Egypt. They were oppressed, weak, and helpless but God promised that He would rescue them and give them land of their own. So, He raised up leaders like Moses and Aaron and in miraculous and...

I know a "Caleb" type man. He is a WWII 94-year-old war veteran and lives down the road from me. I have watched him "run" down my street for ten years now. When I first moved into my house, he was still running at a pretty fast pace for a man his age. These past few...

Borderline Believers

To understand why Reuben, Gad, and the half tribe of Manasseh had made a bad decision when they asked to remain at the East side of the Jordan, we need to read Numbers 32. In that chapter, we read that they had a great number of livestock. When they saw the land of...

God Fights for You

"They will fight against you, but they shall not prevail against you, for I am with you," declares the Lord, "to deliver you." Jeremiah 1:19 Joshua is as much a book about spiritual battles as it is about physical ones. Maybe we haven't faced five physical kingdoms...

I'm not one of those people who reads the last page first, and I don't want you to tell me how the story ends. That approach works fine for fairy tales and fiction, but as a Christian, I am so thankful to know that God has already foretold the ending. Spoiler alert:...

True Repentance

True Repentance

Repentance is such a big component of the Christian life. Both John the Baptist’s and Jesus' first messages were about repentance. It might seem strange to repent of our sins if Jesus already paid for them, but because we continue to sin, and God calls us to turn away...
