THE CHURCH OF TRANSITION Joshua 1:1-9

Introduction:

. The word transition means the passing from one

condition, place, or activity to another.

. From the lukewarm to the hot; from death to life

. From the passive to the active.

. From the talk to the walk; from lack to abundance

. From mediocrity to action;from meetings to ministry

. From the mechanical to the Spirit moving

. This is what the nation of Israel was about to do

. From the wilderness to the wonderful. They were about

to cross over the Jordan River into the promised land
