    Let us continue to worship our Creator God by listening and learning from His Word. Open your Bibles to Joshua 7….. We noted last week from the first part of Joshua 7, some Israelites disobeyed God in Jericho and when they tried to win the City of Ai, 3000 Israelites were killed! God more

  • Fallen Joshua Series

    Contributed by Paul Clemente on Apr 12, 2016

    Did Joshua do anything wrong?

  • Sin In The Camp Series

    Contributed by Robert Leroe on Feb 22, 2016

    God's punishment upon Achan (and his family and possessions) seems severe...and it was, because sin is a serious matter. Sin is rebellion. Sin is covenant-breaking. Sin is choosing to go our way and reject God's way. And sin has consequences.

    Hamlet famously complained that “Something is rotten in the state of Denmark.” Joshua found that something was rotten in Canaan, within his own people. After devoting himself to God, and after a miraculous victory at Jericho, Joshua's army suffered a defeat in Ai. Israel was enjoying more

  • Individualism Series

    Contributed by Tim Smith on Feb 10, 2016

    We have become captive to the idea that faith is a private matter. We have bought into society’s value of individualism. Individualism is leading life one’s own way with little to no regard or connection to others. But is that what God wants for us?

    Individualism Joshua 7: 2-12a Imagine somebody courteously asking, “How is your family life?” or “How is your prayer life?” or “Is your thought life pure?” or “How wisely do you use your time?” or as John Wesley would ask Methodists in his day, more

  • Don't Limit God Series

    Contributed by Christian Cheong on Jul 30, 2015

    Don't limit God to our understanding. We need to enlarge our view of God, allow God to stretch our faith in Him, and see the goodness of God in our lives.

    Gideon was about to face his greatest fear. We’ve seen him asking God for reassurances, a few times. • He knew how great his enemies were, having been tormented by them for 7 years. • Jud 7:12 says they were “thick as locusts” and “their camels could no more more
