Questions for Contemplation Courage: How the Mighty Fall (i.e. We’re not so Special)Posted: October 29, 2013
Remember any defeats? Can you remember a time when God’s people (a church or ministry) lost? Where she suffered casualties ( permanent losses of people or money)? Looking back can you see any early warning signs?
Know any Achans? Do you know anyone whose sin took down a whole family? Took down a whole group? Know any Rahabs? Do you know anyone whose obedience saved a whole family? Preserved a whole group?
Do you see yourself in Joshua? Have you ever foolishly not inquired of the Lord and gotten yourself in serious trouble? Have you ever foolishly blamed God for sin (yours or someone else’s)?
The Lord’s Response & Ours:
What do you need to confess? What do you need to aggressively put to death (see Col 3:5)? What is God calling you to try again? What’s your “do over”?
