It Takes Courage to Have Faith
Our Christian lives, and we as a church, were, in a sense, designed to be put in situations where from the perspective of this world, we should be afraid. Like, if we as a church want to live out a nice, comfortable Christian spin on the American dream and indulge and please and entertain ourselves, we can do that without God. However, when we set our face toward deepest, darkest need right around us and among the nations, then we will need God.
Being a Servant of the Lord (v 1)
I. God gave to Joshua three promises:
1. God would enable them to take the land (vv 2-4)
2. God would be with them (v 5)
3. God would keep His word (vv 6-9)
