Renewal and Glory

Before the people of Israel began to take possession of the Promised Land, God called them to covenant renewal – to commit themselves fully to God and his purposes before embarking on his mission.

In this message we see that God’s timing is often different to our own. In our fast-paced lives and ministry, when we are tempted to rush on ahead, God calls us to renewal, to stop, remember and celebrate who he is and what he has done for us.

It is out of this moment of renewal that God leads his people on his mission to take possession.

Main points:

  • Renewal Comes Before Possession
  • Glory Eclipses Ambition
