A Courageous CHOICE! (Sermon Audio)


This is the audio from the July 3, 2022 sermon, “A Courageous CHOICE”, shared by Tom Lemler at the Deer Run Church of Christ.

Text:  Joshua 2

Do you ever feel trapped by past choices?  Perhaps labeled by others, or even yourself, in ways that don’t reflect who you really want to be?  Maybe surrounded by a culture that isn’t right, but one that makes change seem impossible?  This message takes a look at the second chapter of Joshua to see how one person’s courageous choice changed her life and some lessons we can apply in our own life as we choose God and choose to live with a courageous . . .

  • Confession.  Joshua 2:9-11
    • A courageous choice begins with a courageous confession about ourselves before God.
  • Hope.  Joshua 2:12-13
    • A courageous choice results in a courageous hope that believes we don’t have to stay the way we are.
  • Opportunity.  Joshua 2:14-16
    • A courageous choice gives us a courageous opportunity to treat others the way we want to be treated.
  • Intention.  Joshua 2:17-20
    • A courageous choice will reveal a courageous intention that is tested by what we actually choose to do.
  • Commitment.  Joshua 2:21
    • A courageous choice will contain a courageous commitment that is all in when it comes to doing what God desires.
  • Example.  Joshua 2:22-24
    • A courageous choice will make us a courageous example for others to follow in a way that brings them into a growing relationship with God.

How will your courageous CHOICE today help others see Jesus in you?
