  29. 29. Be Strong and Courageous Compiled and Presented by: Dave Stewart 3 June, 2012#23 www.churchofchristmiranda.com Joshua, the Servant of Jehovah Joshua 24.29-33 Synopsis: The text tells us about the death of Joshua and the elders that followed. While they were alive Israel served Jehovah, but when another generation came along, they abandoned Jehovah. What happened? From this passage we learn the importance of having servant- leaders who are servants of Jehovah and teachers. Additionally we are encouraged to help our children have real, living faith. “Unless otherwise indicated, all Scripture quotations are from The Holy Bible, English Standard Version, copyright © 2001 by Crossway Bibles, a division of Good News Publishers.
