August 17, 2014 – Morning Worship

MondayJoshua 12; Matthew 1:1–17

See here an itemized summary of God’s faithfulness. Are there any applications for us?

TuesdayJoshua 12:1–6; Numbers 21:21–35; Nehemiah 9:22; Psalm 135:11; 136:19–20

Just like Pontius Pilate has a permanent place in the Apostles’ Creed, so Sihon and Og appear in Israel’s praises and prayers. Why?

WednesdayJoshua 12:1–6; 22:21–29; I Corinthians 1:10–13; 3:1–9

It seems like Joshua in chapter 12:1–6 is making a point to remind Israel that the Reubenites, Gadites and the half tribe of Manasseh, on the east side of the Jordan, are just as much a part of Israel as everyone else on the west side. Why the reminder? Why is unity so important?

ThursdayJoshua 12:7–24; Genesis 15:17–21; Romans 4:16–21

In Joshua 12:7–24 the writer lists 31 conquered kings. For an Israelite reading this list, would it be tedious or a cause for praise and thanksgiving? Why? Application for us?

FridayPsalm 105; Acts 7; I Timothy 1:12–17

What do these passages teach us about prayers of thanksgiving? How do your prayers compare?

SaturdayJoshua 12:7–24; Revelation 19; Matthew 25:31–46

What do God’s victories over His enemies teach us about the future? How should they be an encouragement for us?
