SAVED FROM BROKEN PROMISES
If we promise to do something, we have to do it. And if you repeatedly break your promises, you will be seen as unreliable. This applies to individuals. But also to companies and governments. We all long for people and institutions to be reliable. However, often we are disappointed. At the same time: how reliable are we ourselves? Have we always done everything we promised? It is clear that Christians should be reliable persons. Can we see Christianity as a reliable faith, whereas Christians sometimes fail to be reliable? Though Christians are far from perfect, yet Christianity can be seen as a reliable faith. Upcoming Sunday you can learn more, as we read Numbers 30.
Last Sunday the children at ICF Delft learned from Moses’s speech to the Israelites, that when we remember the Lord’s kindness and rescue it helps us to obey his good commands for our lives. Now the kids will journey into the promised land as they learn from the book of Joshua.The new series starts as the Israelites have again come to the edge of the land of Canaan and are ready to inherit the promise that God had first made to Abraham (Genesis 12:7). Joshua covers the taking of the land by faith in this promise and obedience to God’s word.
Lesson Title: Rahab’s RequestText: Joshua 1:1 – 2:24 Big Idea: Rahab, an enemy of Israel in Canaan, heard what God had done to rescue his people and asked in faith to be rescued too. Aim: To teach that God graciously saves anyone who asks for mercy and obediently trusts the rescue plan he provides.
