Sermon Recap for August 30

Yesterday, we celebrated the 79th Anniversary of East End Baptist Church. I’m grateful for the heritage of faith we have as a part of the body of Christ.

Date & Place:

Title: For the Sake of the Future: Joshua 22

Primary Theological Point: What should we learn? It takes deliberate effort to honor the past, live in the present, and equip the future.

Primary Practical Point: What should we do? Make the effort.

Take Home Action: Write your testimony and share it.

Textual Points:

  1. Setting: Israel after the conquest.
  2. Events: building of an altar, not for sacrifice but for teaching
  3. Connections

Preach Points:

  1. Church: do we honor the past or live in it? Are we equipping the future that we do not even know? Assume the better about your fellow church members and their motives.
  2. Salvation: Why an altar as a reminder? Because sacrifice is necessary for salvation....
  3. Mission: Are we thinking about future generations or not?
  4. Families: Set strange habits.
