from the Pastor’s Pen 7/24/20 Weekend

Progressive family,

I pray you are well.  This is an update as we move forward during the week.

Last Week’s Sermon Summary | The Cause of Her Commitment: God’s Power and Presence (Joshua 2:1-11). In Joshua 4-7, we see that Rahab made a commitment and risked her life to save the spies sent by Joshua—the men of God on a mission.  These were not her people and this was not her God.  What was the cause of her commitment?  Why did she engage in an act of civil disobedience against her king? 

She knew.  We see in verse 8-11, that Rahab knew of the power, presence and reputation of our God.  Re-read those verses.  God had gone before these men of God and had an impact on the courage of an entire people.  Rahab and all of her people were trembling in fear at the reputation of our God. Their courage was gone. God precedes us in battle.  If our enemies can be so moved by the power, presence and reputation of our God, let us be sure to act accordingly when God gives us direction.  Let us be, as God told Joshua, strong and courageous and claim territory for the Lord.  Believe in God’s power, God’s power and God’s presence.
