Fight the Good Fight of the Faith: Faith's Greatest Nemesis

In the previous post in this Joshua series, we looked at how Joshua is a type of Jesus--i.e. he is a kind of "working model" of Jesus for us in the Old Testament (OT). In today's sermon, we are going to look at Joshua 3-4, and through Joshua see Jesus--the object of our faith--and we will also learn a little more about faith.

If I were to ask you “What is the nemesis of faith?” What would you say? Last week, we looked at ch. 2 where this book shows us true faith from a gentile harlot—Rahab. Given what you know from that—that true faith is knowledge, conviction, and trust—what do you think faith’s greatest nemesis is? What’s its greatest enemy that plagues it all its life? Many of us would probably be tempted to answer, “Doubt,” but I think that’s a mistake and so does the author of this book.

If you want to hear more (and if you do, you will understand the picture on this post), you can listen to the sermon here or read the transcript here.

I pray that God will use it to magnify His glory in your heart and fortify you for the battles of this Christian life.

By His Grace,
