God saved the Jews from Egypt.  He brought them through the Red Sea. He guided them in the desert.  And then he called THEM to take the promised land.  He would go ahead of them, he would fight for them – but they had to step out in faith and trust that God was with them. It was a scary call; a frightening command from God.  Would they trust and go?  Or would they give in to fear and return to the desert? Just like them, Jesus calls each of us to take up the weapons of faith and win kingdom ground.  Will we respond to the call?  Or will we give in to fear and return to wandering in the desert?
