All year we have been talking about how we can have our most “Courageous Year.” We have been jumping in and out of the book of Joshua, learning from his example as he followed God’s instruction, “Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.”
We want to have the courage and faith of Joshua, but more importantly, Joshua was just a whisper of the true deliverer, Jesus! As we finish this Easter series, we are learning how to truly live a courageous life.
We are looking at the words of our Savior from John 20 and 21 which can be summed up from John 11:25, “Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. The one who believes in me will live, even though they die.” What we are trying to communicate with this series, really this whole year is this: Because of Jesus’ life, we can have life, one with strength and courage because of our faith in Him.
