The book of Joshua has a lot to say about being a people who follow God, which is the kind of people we want to be. We’re going to look at the characters who appear in the story, and what they tell us about different aspects of being more than conquerors.

Israel’s conquest of the Promised Land makes for difficult reading, so it’s important that we know what really happened and why. Along with explaining this, Luke looks at the parallels and differences between the mission Joshua was given, and the one that we have been given.

We’re all on a journey of faith as individuals and as a church family together. In the story of Rahab in Joshua 2, we see that the journey of faith begins with God’s invitation to unexpected people, that it is grounded in who God is and what He’s done, and that it requires a radical response from us.

The Ark of the Covenant was at the heart of everything in the life of ancient Israel, including the conquest of Jericho. In the same way, we must prioritise and cherish the presence of God in our lives.

On Sunday, Lydia continued our preaching series on More Than Conquerers talking about The Daughters of Zelophehad, how they took hold of their inheritance and what we can learn from them.

Dan continues our series in Joshua with a look at Caleb; an example of persevering faith, a refusal to give up believing God and a determination to be involved in what God is doing.
During the preach, Dan quoted from Jerry Bridges on “How to preach the gospel to yourself every day”. If you’d like to pray through the scriptures he references, this blog post is helpful.

Stephen continues our series in Joshua with the story of the tribe of Joseph; a people asking for more but then struggling to believe and take hold of what God has promised them. Stephen shares his own experience of believing God and taking ground, and encourages us to have faith for where God can take us.

In Joshua 15 verse 63, we learn that Jerusalem had not yet been captured, which is very significant given how important Jerusalem became. Here Luke speaks about how David achieved this much later (2 Samuel 5:6:7), and how we can learn from David’s faith as we face strongholds today.
(The recording starts a little after Luke began speaking, which may make for a bit of initial confusion – sorry about that! The complete message is available on our YouTube page.)

We finish our series on Joshua by thinking about how God told Israel to remember His faithfulness as they looked forward to conquering the land – and then we do the same by sharing some of the events we have planned for the term ahead.
