God created a perfect world, and through the entrance of sin, it became a battlefield. Humanity has tried to gain victory, but we always come up short. That’s why in Revelation 5, John weeps because no one is found worthy. This sermon looks at different life stories and how our best and brightest have come up just a little bit short but ultimately are disqualified. But there is one person, he did win: Jesus.
Before Joshua divides the the Promised Land west of the Jordan to the tribes of Israel, Caleb asks for territory for himself and his clan. Why does he make this request and why does he get a blessing from it. The answer goes back 40-45 years to when he along with 11 others were sent as spies.
