Personal failure is no laughing matter. It occurs in various shapes and sizes and causes guilt, shame, embarrassment, and discouragement. Ultimately, failure causes us to believe things that are simply not true and hinders us from moving forward.
As Israel’s new leader, Joshua needed to forge ahead into the Promised Land but was hesitant. Why? Because failure was a possibility, and he needed God’s encouragement and hope to fulfill his calling! And as we’ll soon see, hope cannot be overstated as it encourages us in every difficult situation we face in life.
And to this end, this Sunday morning, September 25, we’ll be looking at “The Fallacy of Failure—Pt. II” (Joshua 1:8-9; Psalm 31:24; Romans 5:3-5, 15:13) as we understand God’s hopeful promises, as well as our attempt to embrace hope when we need it the most. We’re looking forward to seeing you at MCBC!
