OUR CALL – JOSHUA 1

OUR CALL – JOSHUA 1

Our walk begins in Jesus-He is God’s everything
In Him our future – In Him our function
We live and breathe and are in Jesus
Dealing with each issue we face by His Word and in Him

We are called to a moment by moment experience of life
Everything we do in the now, this moment-the present quickly done
The future beckoning – the past accusing
Know this-God says “trust me-move on”

Joshua directed to cross the Jordan-leading Israel into the “promised land”
The Lord calls us to live our life-don’t back down-don’t give up-be
We belong to Him-each of us has promise and value-Jesus is Lord
We are His, He is ours, every step, every breath, every thought –Jesus

Conflict is part of life-this world is a place of chaos and sin-evil abounds the World reigns
Our call-change—change our self—change the world—be a broker of peace, love, forgiveness
It pleases God to give us strength therefore we can stand in the midst of a perverse generation
Knowing we will not be dragged down, knowing the victory is won, we belong, we count

Be strong and courageous, each one of us is called to ministry
All of us are gifted, some with one gift some with ten gifts but each one of us qualified
We can share about what Jesus is doing in our life, living a life of lavish forgiveness for people
We know God’s will – We know God’s Word – we do what we must and never never quit

Life is hard for everyone-every person you meet is facing significant challenges
They may not have Jesus-you may be the only Jesus they ever meet-care for them
Too often we will not get a redo-life is fast-be kind-be Jesus now
We follow the Lord-we mature-we suffer for Christ-we grow and we do it over and over and over

Daily we seek the Lord’s face, daily we read His Word, daily we speak His care and concern
People need the Lord, they need Jesus more than anything else but they don’t know it
Only those that love them can communicate the love of Christ and it takes courage to share
We are now creatures, we struggle with fear, share Jesus and let Him do the rest

We are challenged to walk in the promised land, to stand with Jesus to serve Him
It will take courage to do this but the Lord is in the business of strengthening His servants
Ask Him and He will give you what you need to minister-share what Jesus is doing in your life
Be confident in His love, love one another, have faith in Him, Jesus is Lord of all
