Caleb and Joshua- The Bigger God

Wow, guys, what happened! Where have I been? Well yes, I do have some excuses, but I'm just going to take responsibility for it. I've been off for a while.

I've just got a little story for you guys: Today I taught our Sunday school on Kaleb and Joshua. Now, ya'll know the story ,but I'm going to give you our big idea: THEY'RE BIG... BUT GOD'S BIGGER. Of the twelve spies who went out to Canaan, they all said that they were big, strong, giants there. But Kaleb and Joshua said that God was bigger; God had delivered the Canaanites into their hands, all they had to do was go and take it. They didn't.

Punishment for not believing: Forty years in the dessert, and they wouldn't even get to see Canaan; only their kids. (Joshua and Kaleb went, though).

Well, it's pretty much all there: Kaleb and Joshua had faith in God and His promises, and they were blessed by God for it.

All Christ,

p.s. To all you who were at Project 61, I hope to see you guys next year, keep serving Christ for the glory of God... go Team Nine!

Kole, What about the ESV do you think makes it harder to study? I agree with you on that because of the fact that every commentary Jimmy has in his book cases was not written from the ESV. In fact, the majority was written from the NASB. I've really enjoyed studying from the NASB with my ESV near. Like last night for example, we were reading from 1 Samuel and in chapter 13 verse 1 the ESV reads, "Saul was... years old when he began to reign, and he reigned...and two years over israel." of course the footnotes explain that the number is lacking in Hebrew and Septuagint and that the word two may not be the entire number and something may have dropped out. Jimmy read for us a couple commentarys and of course both said different things. The NASB I think actually has a number in it's place with footnotes also. Little things like this make it harder to study when there are no commntarys on the ESV translation. Anyways, I'm rambling sorry! hahaha... Have a good day! Liz

Never limit what God can do! He's already told us that nothing is impossible with him...let's believe it.

We need to have faith and trust in God and he will deliver us. Thanks Kade!

The text just seems more changed than the NASB because it uses a lot of words to make it easier to understand. I'm also with you with the problem with there being no commentaries on the ESV.

i think Caleb is spelled with a "c".

It is spelled with a "C," sorry. But I have a brother who's name is Kaleb spelled with a "K" so...

And your own name is spelled with a "K"...
