Sermon: "Walking in Faith"

The Rev. Mark Dickinson, Settle Memorial senior pastor

Sermon Outline: Download a printable copy here.

After the death of Moses, the servant of the Lord, the Lord said to Joshua son of Nun, Moses’ aide: ‘Moses my servant is dead. Now then, you and all these people, get ready to cross the Jordan River into the land I am about to give to them — to the Israelites.  I will give you every place where you set your foot, as I promised Moses.  Your territory will extend from the desert to Lebanon, and from the great river, the Euphrates — all the Hittite country — to the Mediterranean Sea in the west.  No one will be able to stand against you all the days of your life. As I was with Moses, so I will be with you; I will never leave you nor forsake you.  Be strong and courageous, because you will lead these people to inherit the land, I swore to their ancestors to give them.  Be strong and very courageous. Be careful to obey all the law my servant Moses gave you; do not turn from it to the right or to the left, that you may be successful wherever you go.  Keep this Book of the Law always on your lips; meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do everything written in it. Then you will be prosperous and successful.  Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.’  So, Joshua ordered the officers of the people: ‘Go through the camp and tell the people, Get your provisions ready. Three days from now you will cross the Jordan here to go in and take possession of the land the Lord your God is giving you for your own.’” - Joshua 1:1-11

“Be careful to obey all the Law. Do not turn from it to the right or the left that you may be successful wherever you go. Do not let this Book of Law depart from your mouth, meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do everything written in it. then you will be prosperous and successful.” - Joshua 1:7-8

New Sermon Series Starts Jan. 7

Starting on Sunday, Jan. 7, and continuing through Sunday, Jan. 28, we will doing a sermon series which I have entitled “Changes in the New Year." If there's one thing we know for sure, there will be changes in the new year for all of us. But with God’s love, help, and guidance, we will move forward. 

We will spend our time talking about God’s plan for us and how we need to step out in faith. We will talk about what God wants to do in our spiritual lives and the changes that he wants to make in our lives to help us become the people and the church he needs us to be. I am looking forward to this and there is no better time to think about how we can grow spiritually and move forward in our faith than at the first of a new year. 

Join me in worship in the coming weeks. We will trust that the Spirit will be at work. 

God bless,
