Donkeys

Recently, we have tackled some challenging passages.

I preached on Joshua 6 and some may have wanted to avoid vs 21. I tried to, but in the end I took it on,

'They devoted the city to the Lord and destroyed with the sword every living thing in it-men and women, young and old, cattle, sheep and donkeys'

It is called 'The fall of Jericho' and you can listen here.

I also commend the sermon by Adam on Ananias and Sapphira called 'No room for falsehood' which you can also find here.

A commitment to preach the whole counsel of Scripture will lead you to difficult but at the same time hugely rich places.

Amen. No pain, no gain.

Or rather, sometimes you need passages that require wrestling with. Like Jacob, we will find the reward at the end of it sweeter than the struggle is hard.
