Walking With the Giants – Joshua Series

Joshua was a soldier.  He was a brilliant soldier, one of the most extraordinary military commanders of all time.  But he was not an exciting person, not a celebrity, and not a personality-driven individual.

He was just a bit of a plugger, a rather straightforward man who was chiefly concerned with carrying out his divine commission to the letter.  He had no great sins and made very few mistakes.  In short, he was not the kind of person that would make a good hero for a novel.

Yet Joshua was eminently God’s man.  God told him at the beginning of the conquest, “Only be thou strong and very courageous, that thou mayest observe to do according to all the law…”  And he was successful!  And at the very end, when he was at least ninety years old, he challenged a new generation to be faithful.

Pastor J. D. Surbaugh will be presenting a series of messages on the life of Joshua throughout the 2011 year.  The sermon audio will be available on our website.
