Sermon Notes
Strong and Courageous ~ Joshua 1

For them: Joshua was the new leader to guide the people into the Promised Land after Moses’ death

  • God promised success and prosperity if they would trust and obey
  • This was success and prosperity in the task at hand and not necessarily all things

For us: Jesus is our perfect Joshua and perfect Moses, he leads us safely into our Promised Land, eternity

  • Jesus leads us out of our sin, this is our Exodus from enslavement
  • Jesus leads us through our present lives, this is our wilderness
    • We must be focused, not allured by the wilderness
    • We must be strong, not afraid of the wilderness
    • We must be engaged, not isolated from the wilderness
  • Jesus leads us into eternity, this is our Promised Land
  • As Jesus leads, we must trust and obey
