    Influencing a Generation

    Joshua and his generation failed to follow through
    and fully obey God’s command to drive out all the
    inhabitants of the land of Canaan.  But when God
    confronted them with their sin, they repented and
    rededicated themselves to the Lord.  The nation of
    Israel went on to serve the Lord all the days of Joshua. 

    Judges 2:7 And the people served the LORD all
    the days of Joshua, and all the days of the elders
    that outlived Joshua, who had seen all the great
    works of the LORD, that he did for Israel.

    It is possible to impact our generation for good. 
    We cannot guarantee how long our influence might
    last.  We cannot even guarantee how long we will last. 
    But we can choose to do what is right and be a force
    for good in our generation.  We can stem the tide of
    evil for ourselves and our children.  That is what
    Joshua and his generation did.

    We say that we are troubled by the direction of
    our country.  We say that we are worried about the
    future for our children and grandchildren.  But are
    we sorry enough to repent of our own sin and choose
    to do things differently, to do things right?  There is
    a sorrow of this world that works death.  We need
    godly sorrow that works repentance (2 Corinthians 7:10).
    The hope for our generation lies in our willingness
    to repent of our sin and do what is right.

    They Forsook The Lord, And Followed Other Gods

    The book of Judges is a difficult
    book to read. Though it contains
    happy moments, overall, it is very
    dark, and as you progress through
    the book, it gets worse and worse. 

    Twice it says in the book of Judges,
    “In those days there was no king in
    Israel, but every man did that which
    was right in his own eyes.” (Judges
    17:6; 21:25) How did the nation that
    received God’s law at Mount Sinai
    end up in such a terrible place? It
    happened because they decided to
    forsake God and follow idols. 

    Before Joshua died, he charged
    the people, “And if it seem evil unto
    you to serve the LORD, choose you
    this day whom ye will serve; whether
    the gods which your fathers served
    that were on the other side of the
    flood, or the gods of the Amorites,
    in whose land ye dwell: but as for
    me and my house, we will serve the
    LORD.” (Joshua 24:15) Joshua
    and his generation chose to serve
    the Lord. But the next generation
    decided to serve false gods. “And
    they forsook the LORD God of
    their fathers, which brought them
    out of the land of Egypt, and followed
    other gods.” (Joshua 2:13).

    Every individual must choose for
    themselves who they will follow. Either
    they will follow the true God, the God
    of the Bible, or they will follow a false
    god, doing whatever is right in their
    own eyes. The book of Judges shows
    us the disastrous consequences of
    forsaking the Lord and following false
    gods. The consequences will be painful
    if we stray from God and do what we
    think is right instead of what God says
    is right.

    I Know I Can’t

    One of my earliest memories is from when I was in preschool. I was four years old and attending Hickory Grove Presbyterian Preschool, where my mom was one of the teachers. Occasionally we would watch movies projected onto the block wall of the basement, and one day we watched the story of “The Little Train Who Could.” I remember feeling sad for the train as his friends made fun of him. I remember feeling anxious as he finally had a chance to prove himself by hauling that big load up that hill. I remember cheering him on in my mind as he chugged, “I think I can, I think I can…” until he finally crested the top. It is
    a wonderful story to teach children the values of determination and perseverance. 

    But there is a downside to a story like that. The truth is that there are some things we cannot do, no matter how hard we try or think we can. If we stubbornly push ahead anyway, insisting that we can do something when it is impossible for us, we will become frustrated, angry, and eventually, give up altogether. This is especially true when it comes to spiritual things. Because we are sinners, there are some things that we cannot do on our own. We cannot save ourselves.
    No amount of effort will ever be enough to merit salvation or pay off our sin debt. We cannot sanctify ourselves either. Some people teach that salvation is by grace, but sanctification is by works. That is a lie. We are sanctified the same way we are saved: by grace through faith in the person and work of Jesus Christ. Instead of always saying, “I think I can,” we need to learn when to say, “I know I can’t.”
