Preaching Preview for Sunday July 30th

Text: Joshua 1:1-9
Title: Missio Dei IV

In his book "The Barbarian Way: Unleash the Untamed Faith Within" Erwin Raphael McManus called the church to shed civilized religion for Barbarian faith. Why? "Because Jesus did not suffer and die so that we could build for ourselves havens, but so that we might expand the kindgom of His love. Because invisible kingdoms are at war for the hearts and lives of every human being who walks on the face of the earth. And times of war require barbarians who are willing to risk life itself for the freedom of others."

This Sunday we will explore the experience of a "Barbarian" named Joshua. He - fought to lead people into the promised land, was strong, was positive, and lived in the Word of God. He cut a warrior path for us to follow.

A passage to ponder - "You, therefore, my child, be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus. And what you have heard from me in the presence of many witnesses, commit to faithful men who will be able to teach others also. Share in suffering as a good soldier of Christ Jesus" (II Timothy 2:1-3 HCSB).

Sunday Night: We will continue our teaching series on I and II Thessalonians. The text will be I Thess. 4:1-12
