Terry Codling, the chair of our elders, will be closing out the series today looking at the life of Caleb and the theme of commitment in Numbers 14:24 and Deuteronomy 9:1-3. Caleb is an obscure warrior who appears and then disappears from Israel’s history but leaves behind an inspiring story.
This is a man who has a heart that is totally committed to God. So many times we find ourselves in a place where we really dread the outcome that we foresee and God appears to be doing nothing to change it.
We are faced with two options:
Bail out on God’s plan and create a new outcome of our own choosing;
or cling tight to God and allow him to take us where he wants to go.
Caleb was committed to the journey with God. Often that is a lonely, long, hard journey. It really is a faith question.
Am I, by faith, committed to God?
