Wholly Following The Lord
INTRO: I want you to take your bibles now this morning, and I want you to go ahead and be finding your place there in the Old Testament at Joshua chapter 14, Joshua chapter 14 and verse number 8, and I want to talk to you for a few minutes this morning about what the Christian life is really all about. Because what we are going to be talking about this morning is really the difference between whether you are a worker or a shirker. Whether you are a witness or a waste. Whether you are sold out to God or serving the devil. And I believe that the answer to this question is found in the example of a man by the name of Caleb.
Now when the bible says something once, that is enough. And if the bible says something two times, that is more than enough. And should God in His Holy Word tell us something 3 times, that is unusual. And should God ever say something four times, it is unique. And should God ever tell us something five times, it is extraordinary. And if God were to ever tell us something six times, it is super extraordinary. And I want you to know that not one time, not two times, not three times, not four times, not five times, but six times in His Holy Word, God says to us that there was a man by the name of Caleb, who wholly followed the Lord. WHOLLY. Wholly followed the Lord.
In other words, the bible says that Caleb didn't follow the Lord half-heartedly. He didn't follow the Lord mediocrely. He didn't just give a token commitment to the Lord, but the bible says that Caleb wholly followed the Lord.
And I want you to know, that if we are going to do what God wants us to do, if we are going to be what God wants us to be, and if we are going to go where God wants us to go, then we must be like Caleb and Wholly Follow The Lord!
