    Portraits of Biblical Failures - Various Passages

    Originally preached on September 1991 – April 2004

    The believer's life is a marathon; a race run not in cities on paved roads, but through sweltering jungles, over jagged cliffs and in lifeless deserts. Falling is likely, stumbling is certain. The winner is not the one with the quickest burst out of the gates, but the one who gets up when everyone else has given up. We who are running can learn from those who have finished. Some runners show us how to choose the right path, and others show us how to keep going after everyone has written us off as a failure. In this seven message series, Stephen examines six men who faltered...failed...but did not give up. Let these Portraits of Biblical Failures be an example as you move closer to the finish line!

    Second in Command: The Life of Joshua - Joshua 1:1-24

    Originally preached on September 1991 – January 1992

    Are you fighting for us or against us? Joshua cried out. God's reply was unforgettable. Neither. I have come as captain of the Lord's hosts. The truth is clear: God is not fighting on our side, but we are fighting on His. Like Joshua, we are merely foot soldiers in the midst of battle, giving worship and obedience to the Captain who is gaining victory over His enemies. We must not forget that though He graciously rewards us as heroes, allowing us to drink freely of his spoils, we exit the battlefield the same way we entered: as servants.
