Sunday's Message Text:
Bible Plan Readings - Week 32
Memorize: Matthew 11:28
We started a new teaching series called Storyteller based on the story of God in Joshua. From Sunday's message in Joshua 1, or the Meet Jesus Bible Reading Plan this week, what is impacting you the most? Was there a word, phrase, Bible verse, or theme that impacted you?
How many occurrences do you find in Joshua 1 about different generations of people? List them. How are generations of people connected in Joshua 1?
Why did God tell Joshua three different times to “be strong and courageous”?
From verses 5-7, how does God’s presence with the Christian create strength and courage?
In verse 8, what does it mean to meditate on God’s Word?
In what ways do the people respond to Joshua in verses 16-18?
Why is it important to make a big deal about the church being multi-generational?
Does it surprise you how quick God told Joshua to cross the Jordan River? "Now arise, go..." (consider Israel's journey before Joshua became the leader. And consider what Joshua said to the people:"Prepare...for within three days...")
How is meditating on God's Word different than reading God's Word? Which one helps you experience God?
What is the end goal of meditating on God’s Word and being courageous?
Who needs to hear you say "be strong and courageous" this week?
Do you personally believe in the power of storytelling? For example, if you knew telling a story would save someone's life from ever taking drugs, would you share it? What does it take to share the story?
