Lessons From The Old Testament!

Pastor James Stead

Sermon 1

The Danger of Forgetting!

Joshua 24:31 (NLT) The people of Israel served the Lord throughout the lifetime of Joshua and of the elders who outlived him—those who had personally experienced all that the Lord had done for Israel.

The nation of Israel quickly decayed after a new generation took over, a generation that knew neither Joshua nor Joshua’s God.

Judges 2:10 (NLT) After that generation died, another generation grew up who did not acknowledge the Lord or remember the mighty things he had done for Israel.

Instead of exhibiting spiritual fervour, Israel sank into apathy; instead of obeying the Lord, the people moved into apostasy; and instead of the nation enjoying law and order, the land was filled with anarchy. It really was the worst of times for Israel.
