Fear and wandering, doubt and weariness; these words describe a number of people stuck in their journey of faith. Caught between the pain of earth and the promise of heaven, it is easy for Christians to hold their faith as a relic of religiosity. The tradition is there but the vibrancy is gone. Hope seems distant. Does that sound familiar?
We can forget that Jesus’ resurrection puts us on the brink of the promise! Some promises are even available now. For Christ’s followers, faith ought to moves us forward to grasp what God has given through the gospel.
I invite you to join us at Windsor District Baptist Church the next few weeks as we study God’s Word to us through the book of Joshua. Here we find another community of God’s people standing on the brink of the promise. Would God’s promises to them come true? If so, how would He do it? What did God expect of his people in the time between deliverance and inheritance – and what could they expect of Him?
Through Joshua’s historical account we’ll see that faith is not a relic but a resolve. We’ll learn faith is not rooted in our traditions but in God’s promises. And together we’ll seek to move forward by faith into God’s will for our lives now, courageously relying on His great power to accomplish His good purposes.
So join us Sunday morning (9:30am) and evening (6:00pm) for our worship services. I trust you’ll be invigorated in your spirit, released from fear, and emboldened in your witness. I can’t wait to see what God has in store – for me and for you.
