Mt. Zion Church eNewsletter - Sept 15, 2017

This Sunday! – “Joshua – A New Beginning” – Part 5”
F. W. Robertson is quoted as making a statement which ties in beautifully with what we’ll be looking at in chapter 8: "Life, like war, is a series of mistakes, and he is not the best Christian nor the best general who make the fewest false steps. Poor mediocrity may secure that; but he is the best who wins the most splendid victories by the retrieval of mistakes. Forget mistakes; organize victories out of mistakes."

When we have made a mistake and suffered a defeat what we do is now up to us, we can live in that defeat or we can by God’s grace learn from it and go on.

Though we should never seek to fail, failure can be a backdoor to success if we are willing to seek the forgiveness of God and deal with our sin in the way that God has prescribed. This week we look to Joshua Chapter 8 for 5 secrets for getting back on track after a defeat.

Blessings,
         Pastor Erik

Mt. Zion Church eNewsletter - Sept 8, 2017

The Mt. Zion Church eNewsletter!
This Sunday! – “Joshua – A New Beginning” – Part 5”

“THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS A SECRET SIN”

Joshua 7:1-26

The seventh chapter of Joshua opens with the ominous word “but.” The use of the little conjunction of contrast is designed to drive home the reality that victory is often followed by the threat of defeat.  Suddenly we are presented with a series of failures that stand in striking contrast to the victories of the past six chapters. Israel had just experienced a miraculous victory over Jericho, “but” now they are going to experience defeat.  When Joshua sent out the troops to take Ai he was unaware of Achan’s sin or of God’s displeasure. I have to wonder that if he had consulted with the Lord before making his plans if he would not have learned about both.  Likewise many of our personal failures could be avoided if we first took our plans and concerns to God in prayer. Christian would do well to spend time consulting with God before making decisions that may have a major impact both their own lives and the lives of others.


Blessings,
          Pastor Erik
