We all have personal “Jerichos” — fear, guilt, sin, addiction, negativity, anger, and more — that keep us from an abundant Christian life. This week, Rev. Jeremiah Cheung reflects on the experience of Joshua and the Israelites to reassure us that when we abide in Jesus, we too can overcome our personal Jerichos.
Why did Joshua fully trust in God’s unconventional strategy for overcoming the walls of Jericho? This week, Rev. Genesis Tan reminds us that when we face the impossible, we must remember who is in charge, carry out His plan, and persevere in our obedience.
Nasaksihan ni Joshua ang pagguho ng balwarte ng Jericho dahil sa kapangyarihan ng Diyos. Sa parehong paraan, ibinibigay ng Diyos sa atin ang kapangyarihan na magtagumpay laban sa mga pwersa ng kasamaan. Itong linggo, hinihikayat tayo ni Ptr. Allan Rillera na buong pusong magtiwala at sumunod sa Diyos na nagbigay sa atin ng tagumpay laban sa kasamaan sa pamamagitan ni Hesu Kristo.
Joshua Chapter 5 records the three extraordinary steps the Jews took to prepare for their forthcoming battle with Jericho. This week, Rev. Jeremiah Cheung reminds us that our human ideas of preparation will hardly ever match the Lord’s and that our obedience to His will is the key to success.
