September 26th at 7pm in the Fellowship Hall.

No need to pre-register. We will have registration that night, as well as a time to get to know each other in small groups. Childcare will be provided.

We are delighted to be studying through the book of Joshua this year in a study entitled, “Possessing the Promises.” The Bible study lessons have been published in a book format and will be available for a donation of $10 on Sunday mornings during the month of September in the courtyard, and at the Joyful Life study.

POSSESSING THE PROMISES

The Bible offers a myriad of exceedingly great and precious promises (2 Peter 1:4)! When Joshua first became the leader of Israel following the death of Moses, he was given the daunting task of conquering the land of Canaan. Yet God gave him a promise as he embarked on his mission: Be strong and of good courage; do not be afraid, nor be dismayed, for the LORD your God is with you wherever you go (Joshua 1:9). As Joshua believed God’s promise and walked in obedience to God’s commands, he witnessed God’s conquering power and might in bringing Israel victoriously into the land. As a result, Joshua could confidently declare to the people, Not one thing has failed of all the good things which the LORD your God spoke concerning you. All have come to pass for you; not one word of them has failed (Joshua 23:14).

The same God who worked mightily to bring Joshua and the Israelites into the land He had promised them desires to bring us into all He has for us today! Our God has made a covenant with us to give us all His promises through Christ Jesus (2 Corinthians 1:20). This study through the book of Joshua will give us greater insights into God’s character, encourage us to embrace His promises, and challenge us to walk in obedience to His Word. It is time to inherit and take possession of these promises by faith in Jesus!
