Thankfulness
  • Joshua 23

2
  • Chapter 23 Chapter 24

3
  • Deathbed Conversations

4
Joshua 233 You have seen all that the Lord your
God has done to all these nations because of you,
for the Lord your God is He who has fought for
you. Joshua 238 but you shall hold fast to the
Lord your God, as you have done to this day.
5
  • Joshua emphasizes the Lord Your Gods faithfulness

6
  • He then notes the importance of remaining faithful

7
  • He warns of the consequences of unfaithfulness

8
Joshua 231-2
  • 1 Now it came to pass, a long time after the Lord
    had given rest to Israel from all their enemies
    round about, that Joshua was old, advanced in
    age. 2 And Joshua called for all Israel, for
    their elders, for their heads, for their judges,
    and for their officers, and said to them I am
    old, advanced in age.

9
Joshua 233-4
  • 3 You have seen all that the Lord your God has
    done to all these nations because of you, for the
    Lord your God is He who has fought for you. 4
    See, I have divided to you by lot these nations
    that remain, to be an inheritance for your
    tribes, from the Jordan, with all the nations
    that I have cut off, as far as the Great Sea
    westward.

10
Joshua 235-6
  • 5 And the Lord your God will expel them from
    before you and drive them out of your sight. So
    you shall possess their land, as the Lord your
    God promised you. 6 Therefore be very courageous
    to keep and to do all that is written in the Book
    of the Law of Moses, lest you turn aside from it
    to the right hand or to the left,

11
Joshua 237-8
  • 7 and lest you go among these nations, these who
    remain among you. You shall not make mention of
    the name of their Gods, nor cause anyone to swear
    by them you shall not serve them nor bow down to
    them, 8 but you shall hold fast to the Lord your
    God, as you have done to this day.

12
Joshua 239-10
  • 9 For the Lord has driven out from before you
    great and strong nations but as for you, no one
    has been able to stand against you to this day.
    10 One man of you shall chase a thousand, for the
    Lord your God is He who fights for you, as He
    promised you.

13
Joshua 2311-12
  • 11 Therefore take careful heed to yourselves,
    that you love the Lord your God. 12 Or else, if
    indeed you do go back, and cling to the remnant
    of these nationsthese that remain among youand
    make marriages with them, and go in to them and
    they to you,

14
Joshua 2313
  • 13 know for certain that the Lord your God will
    no longer drive out these nations from before
    you. But they shall be snares and traps to you,
    and scourges on your sides and thorns in your
    eyes, until you perish from this good land which
    the Lord your God has given you.

15
  • A life of faithfulness to the Lord bring success

16
Joshua 233-5
  • 2 And Joshua called for all Israel, for their
    elders, for their heads, for their judges, and
    for their officers, and said to them I am old,
    advanced in age. 3 You have seen all that the
    Lord your God has done to all these nations
    because of you, for the Lord your God is He who
    has fought for you. 4 See, I have divided to you
    by lot these nations that remain, to be an
    inheritance for your tribes, from the Jordan,
    with all the nations that I have cut off, as far
    as the Great Sea westward. 5 And the Lord your
    God will expel them from before you and drive
    them out of your sight. So you shall possess
    their land, as the Lord your God promised you.

  • The Apostle Paul from a Roman prison in 61 AD

18
Philippians 13-6
  • I thank my God upon every remembrance of you, 4
    always in every prayer of mine making request for
    you all with joy, 5 for your fellowship in the
    gospel from the first day until now, 6 being
    confident of this very thing, that He who has
    begun a good work in you will complete it until
    the day of Jesus Christ

19
  • The Apostle Paul from a Roman prison in 67 AD

20
2 Timothy 46-8
  • 6 For I am already being poured out as a drink
    offering, and the time of my departure is at
    hand. 7 I have fought the good fight, I have
    finished the race, I have kept the faith. 8
    Finally, there is laid up for me the crown of
    righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous
    Judge, will give to me on that Day, and not to me
    only but also to all who have loved His
    appearing.

21
  • SUCCESS

22
  • Gods concept of success often looks very
    different

23
Success is being the person God has called you to
be and doing well the task that God has called
you to do!
24
What the world defines as success can be empty
nothingness in the eyes of the sovereign God.
25
Joshua 18 This Book of the Law shall not depart
from your mouth, but you shall meditate in it day
and night, that you may observe to do according
to all that is written in it. For then you will
make your way prosperous, and then you will have
good success.
26
1 Corinthians 1031-33 Therefore, whether you
eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the
glory of God. Give no offense, either to the Jews
or to the Greeks or to the church of God, just as
I also please all men in all things, not seeking
my own profit, but the profit of many, that they
may be saved.
27
Proverbs 34 And so find favor and high esteem
In the sight of God and man.
28
Mark 836 For what will it profit a man if he
gains the whole world, and loses his own soul?
29
  • Four steps we can take to achieve real SUCCESS

30
Joshua 233
  • 3 You have seen all that the Lord your God has
    done to all these nations because of you, for the
    Lord your God is He who has fought for you.

31
Step 1
  • Give God the credit for all you have and all you
    are

32
  • When I am in the middle of a struggle…

33
  • I have a way of depending upon the Lord

34
  • But when I come out of a struggle in good shape…

35
  • I have a tendency to remember my effort and
    overlook the Lords hand

36
  • Moses Joshua

37
When we are able to give our successes back to
God as His accomplishments…
38
we are also free from having to take full
responsibility for what some might call failure
39
All that I have is Gods… I am simply a
steward!
40
Any good I accomplish… is accomplished by
His grace in His power for His glory
41
Step 1
  • Give God the credit for all you have and all you
    are

42
Step 2
  • Stay obedient to Gods Word

43
Joshua 236
  • Therefore be very courageous to keep and to do
    all that is written in the Book of the Law of
    Moses, lest you turn aside from it to the right
    hand or to the left

44
2 Timothy 316-18
  • 16 All Scripture is given by inspiration of God,
    and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for
    correction, for instruction in righteousness, 17
    that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly
    equipped for every good work.

45
Psalm 1199-11
  • 9 How can a young man cleanse his way? By taking
    heed according to Your word. 10 With my whole
    heart I have sought You Oh, let me not wander
    from Your commandments! 11 Your word I have
    hidden in my heart, That I might not sin against
    You.

46
Isaiah 819-22
  • 19 And when they say to you, Seek those who are
    mediums and wizards, who whisper and mutter,
    should not a people seek their God? Should they
    seek the dead on behalf of the living? 20 To the
    law and to the testimony! If they do not speak
    according to this word, it is because there is no
    light in them. 21 They will pass through it
    hard-pressed and hungry and it shall happen,
    when they are hungry, that they will be enraged
    and curse their king and their God, and look
    upward. 22 Then they will look to the earth, and
    see trouble and darkness, gloom of anguish and
    they will be driven into darkness.

47
Step 1
  • Give God the credit for all you have and all you
    are

48
Step 2
  • Stay obedient to Gods Word

49
Step 3
  • Live a separated life

50
Joshua 236-7
  • 6 Therefore be very courageous to keep and to do
    all that is written in the Book of the Law of
    Moses, lest you turn aside from it to the right
    hand or to the left, 7 and lest you go among
    these nations, these who remain among you. You
    shall not make mention of the name of their gods,
    nor cause anyone to swear by them you shall not
    serve them nor bow down to them

51
Joshua 2312-13
  • 12 Or else, if indeed you do go back, and cling
    to the remnant of these nationsthese that remain
    among youand make marriages with them, and go in
    to them and they to you, 13 know for certain that
    the Lord your God will no longer drive out these
    nations from before you. But they shall be snares
    and traps to you, and scourges on your sides and
    thorns in your eyes, until you perish from this
    good land which the Lord your God has given you.

52
  • We are citizens of two worlds

53
  • We must be careful not to buy in completely to
    this world

54
1 Corinthians 919-20
  • 19 For though I am free from all men, I have made
    myself a servant to all, that I might win the
    more 20 and to the Jews I became as a Jew, that
    I might win Jews to those who are under the law,
    as under the law, that I might win those who are
    under the law

55
1 Corinthians 921-23
  • 21 to those who are without law, as without law
    (not being without law toward God, but under law
    toward Christ), that I might win those who are
    without law 22 to the weak I became as weak,
    that I might win the weak. I have become all
    things to all men, that I might by all means save
    some. 23 Now this I do for the gospels sake,
    that I may be partaker of it with you.

56
1 John 519
  • We know that we are of God, and the whole world
    lies under the sway of the wicked one.

57
John 1714-16
  • 14 I have given them Your word and the world has
    hated them because they are not of the world,
    just as I am not of the world. 15 I do not pray
    that You should take them out of the world, but
    that You should keep them from the evil one. 16
    They are not of the world, just as I am not of
    the world.

58
  • Be careful of such a thing as
  • Reverse Evangelism

59
1 Peter 114
  • as obedient children, not conforming yourselves
    to the former lusts, as in your ignorance

60
1 Peter 115-16
  • but as He who called you is holy, you also be
    holy in all your conduct, because it is written,
    Be holy, for I am holy.

61
  • We have been sent
  • into the world

62
  • be different
  • from the world

63
  • Is your lifestyle different from your unsaved
    neighbors?

64
James 44
  • Do you not know that friendship with the world is
    enmity with God? Whoever therefore wants to be a
    friend of the world makes himself an enemy of God.

65
  • This directly addresses one of the major issues
    of our day

66
  • Separation of
  • Church and State

67
Mark 1217
  • And Jesus answered and said to them, Render to
    Caesar the things that are Caesars, and to God
    the things that are Gods. And they marveled at
    Him.

68
Hebrews 1024-25
  • 24 And let us consider one another in order to
    stir up love and good works, 25 not forsaking the
    assembling of ourselves together, as is the
    manner of some, but exhorting one another, and so
    much the more as you see the Day approaching.

69
  • The significance of not being
  • unequally yoked

70
  • Speaking to Singles

71
  • Determine before the Lord to claim Christs
    strength to remain single rather than marry a
    nonbeliever

72
Step 1
  • Give God the credit for all you have and all you
    are

73
Step 2
  • Stay obedient to Gods Word

74
Step 3
  • Live a separated life

75
Step 4
  • Avoid false worship

76
Joshua 236-7
  • 6 Therefore be very courageous to keep and to do
    all that is written in the Book of the Law of
    Moses, lest you turn aside from it to the right
    hand or to the left, 7 and lest you go among
    these nations, these who remain among you. You
    shall not make mention of the name of their gods,
    nor cause anyone to swear by them you shall not
    serve them nor bow down to them,

77
Our Worship can not be…
  • Our marriage partner
  • Our children
  • Our work
  • Our hobby
  • Our nation

78
Mark 1230
  • And you shall love the Lord your God with all
    your heart, with all your soul, with all your
    mind, and with all your strength. This is the
    first commandment.

79
Four steps to true Success…
  • Give God the credit for all you have and all you
    are
  • Stay obedient to Gods Word
  • Live a separated life
  • Avoid false worship

80
  • The Consequence of Unfaithfulness

81
Joshua 2314
  • Behold, this day I am going the way of all the
    earth. And you know in all your hearts and in all
    your souls that not one thing has failed of all
    the good things which the Lord your God spoke
    concerning you. All have come to pass for you
    not one word of them has failed.

82
Joshua 2315
  • Therefore it shall come to pass, that as all the
    good things have come upon you which the Lord
    your God promised you, so the Lord will bring
    upon you all harmful things, until He has
    destroyed you from this good land which the Lord
    your God has given you.

83
Joshua 2316
  • When you have transgressed the covenant of the
    Lord your God, which He commanded you, and have
    gone and served other gods, and bowed down to
    them, then the anger of the Lord will burn
    against you, and you shall perish quickly from
    the good land which He has given you.

84
Consequences of Unfaithfulness
  • Destruction
  • Despair
  • Disgrace

  • Are you giving God the credit for all you have
    and all you are?
  • Are you obedient to Gods Word?
  • Are you living a separated life?
  • Are you involved in false worship?
