Caleb

Numbers 14:24; Deuteronomy 9:1-3     Terry Codling     Sermon notes     Small group questions

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?
