Steve tells the story of the Israelites sending the 12 spies into the Promised Land but only two of them (Caleb and Joshua) trusted God, so the whole nation spent the next 38 years wandering in the desert before coming back to the Jordan, across from Jericho. Now they are ready to trust God and enter the land. Are you prepared to trust God?
We have the whole of Scripture to lead us and to guide us but we need to seek God; we need to seek His will. We also need to be very aware of the sin of unbelief. Jesus came to do the will of His Father. If we want real life – that’s what we need to do too! The big question is; what have you done with Jesus?
At this year’s Sunday School Anniversary, David focuses on three important things that we should do as God’s special people – we should love one another, we should apologise or say sorry if we hurt someone or if we hurt God and we should forgive those who hurt us! These things aren’t easy to do but they are part of “Loving God”.
