Joshua 24 records Israel's covenant renewal at the end of Joshua's campaigns to possess the land of Canaan. Joshua tells the people they are not able to serve the Lord given that he is a holy and jealous God. Encouragingly they were able to serve the Lord and continued to do so even after the death of Joshua. Pastor John Ting preaches.
If Joshua had a bucket list, Joshua 23 reveals what is perhaps top on his list now that he's old and advance in years – he exhorts the leaders and rallies them to cling to the Lord for life. What does clinging to the Lord entail for us? Pastor Adrin Muñoz preaches from Joshua 23.
Come and hear the legacy that Joshua leaves behind for the Israelites - a legacy of God's covenantal faithfulness. A covenantal faithfulness to bless if the Israelites respond with the covenantal mutual response of faith and trust called for, but also to strike if the Israelites choose to rebel against God by clinging to other gods! Pastor Edmund Fong preaches from Joshua 23.
After significant conquests in Canaan, Joshua divided the land to the tribes as inheritance. It is meant for them to take over the land even as God promised to drive out the enemies for them. One man stood out as he trusted God to keep his promises. Let us be encouraged to live likewise. Pastor Roger Chia preaches at the Family Service.
The charge to be strong and courageous is given to Joshua not because he may have feelings of insecurity in taking the baton from Moses. The charge to be strong and courageous, rather, is an urge to surrender the kind of fear that you and I have – the fear and the terror of man. Pastor Adrin Muñoz preaches from Joshua 1 to 5:12.
