LISTEN NOW:John, Pat and Chris discuss the power of someone’s last words when they are either leaving a post, or on their death bed. Normally these words are generally very important as it truly reveals the heart of the person and the main thing they want their followers or family to know. They discuss Joshua’s last words to the Israelites in Joshua 23, where Joshua shares with them not to forget how the Lord fought for them and not to overlook God’s word and to obey it. They continue to discuss that Joshua’s last words were the same as the first words God gave him in the beginning of his leadership. God told Joshua in Joshua 1:8 “8 Keep this Book of the Law always on your lips; meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do everything written in it. Then you will be prosperous and successful.” They also share Jesus’ instructions to his disciples when His mission on earth was just about to be over and He was going back to the father. He told them that He needed to go so that the Holy Spirit could come. They continue to share how the secret to success is humility, obedience to God’s Word, and relying on the Holy Spirit.
