The Battle for the Holy
Sermon Synopsis: The Promised Land was not conquered without a fight. If you want the best in life, you might as well expect a struggle. The Battle for the Holy involves conflicts within and without brought to life through adversity. There is no question whether or not you will have adversity. Everyone has adversity. The real question is what it will do to you. The conquest over adversity will challenge every part of who you are and whose you are.
It is Senior Day at Emmanuel. We honor our high school and college graduates and the seniors in our congregation. The word to them from Joshua is simple. Just because you have made it to this point in your life you shouldn’t expect the world to bow down at your feet. You have battles to fight, adversity to overcome. Your world has yet to be conquered. Claim it first with God and grow in God until the promise has been fulfilled in you.
