Dear Generation Next,

As the Old Testament book of Joshua begins the great spiritual leader Moses has died.  God then names Joshua Moses' assistant to take over as leader.

“After the death of Moses the servant of God, God spoke to Joshua. ‘Moses my servant is dead. Get along. Cross the Jordan River, you and all the people. Cross the country I’m giving to the People of Israel.“  Joshua 1:1-3

Let this text talk to you. Listen for the questions it poses:

  • Joshua and all of Israel mourned Moses, who do you mourn and why?
  • Do you trust that God has prepared you to meet the new challenges in your life?
  • What do you want the next generation to inherit from you, and why?

Moses, Joshua and all the people who have walked in the faith before us, have been used by God to bring us to this place. God says in Joshua 1:5, ”In the same way I was with Moses, I’ll be with you.” God is by your side right now, equipping you to face each challenge, and offering you joy beyond what humans could create.

Prayers: for the legacy of Moses, Joshua, you and me. May we be faithful to the inheritance we offer the next generation.

Still in One Peace,

Pastor David J. Jensen
