May 18, 2014 – Morning Worship
In Joshua 5:1–12 we see that the Old Testament sacraments had to be revived. Why do you think they were neglected? Application for us?
Tuesday – Numbers 13, 14
Is there a clue in these passages that might point us to the reason that the Old Testament sacraments were neglected and needed to be revived?
You can be outwardly moral, receive the sacraments and still miss heaven! How can that be?
Thursday – Joshua 5:6; Genesis 12:7; Exodus 32:7–14
In Joshua 5:6 the Lord “swore” to the disobedient Israelites that they would not enter the land that the Lord had “sworn” to their fathers they would enter. Is there a contradiction there? Is God’s promise thwarted?
The manna, God’s provision for Israel through the wilderness, has now ceased. They were now to eat from the produce of the land. Does that mean that God had ceased to provide for them?
One of the temptations for God’s people is to think God is only in the “big things”: earthquake, wind, fire, miracles, healings, etc. Believing we must have “dramatic signs” and that God is not in the ordinary things. How can we correct that?
