Be a Leader

Moses led the Israelites for many years. God chose Joshua to become the new leader of the Israelites. In our Bible Reading, Moses told the people, “But the Lord your God will lead you people into that land. He will destroy these nations for you…The Lord said that Joshua must lead you” (verse 3).
Moses called Joshua before all the Israelites. He told Joshua (verses 7b-8), “Be strong and brave…The Lord will lead you. He himself is with you. He will not fail you or leave you. Don’t worry. Don’t be afraid!” Joshua became a great leader. Why? Because God was with him and helped him.
God needs good leaders today, too. Many people in the world reject God’s teachings. God needs Christians who will stand up for what is right. He needs leaders who will continue to share the Good News about Jesus, even when they are facing persecution.
You can be a leader for God today. God will be with you and give you strength.
