The Man That God Uses
Josephus the historian wrote the following about Joshua: “Joshua lived forty years in Egypt and forty years in the wilderness. He had endured hardship, privation, fought God’s enemies, and faced a false report in the wilderness. He had seen the giants. After eighty years of faithful service, God spoke to him and placed him in a place of great leadership.” He found success in all He did for the Lord.
This inspirational sermon about the life of Joshua focuses on several key character traits:
- He was an ordinary man.
- He was a dedicated and determined man.
- He was a courageous man.
- He was a decisive man.
- He was a faithful and loyal man.
