Part 8 – “Uncertain”

September 13, 2020


Joshua 1:1-2

After the death of Moses the servant of the Lord, the Lord said to Joshua son of Nun, Moses’ aide: “Moses my servant is dead. Now then, you and all these people, get ready to cross the Jordan River into the land I am about to give to them—to the Israelites. 


Joshua 1:10-11

So Joshua ordered the officers of the people: “Go through the camp and tell the people, ‘Get your provisions ready. Three days from now you will cross the Jordan here to go in and take possession of the land the Lord your God is giving you for your own.’”


James 4:13-15

Now listen, you who say, “Today or tomorrow we will go to this or that city, spend a year there, carry on business and make money.”  Why, you do not even know what will happen tomorrow. What is your life? You are a mist that appears for a little while and then vanishes.


Four questions to gain clarity:

  1. Why are we doing this? - Purpose
  2. What will it look like when we get there? - Picture
  3. How will we do it? - Plan
  4. What’s everyone’s role? - Part


Matthew 28:18-20

“All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”



What leadership responsibilities do you have?

How will the four questions help you lead more effectively?



Group Questions:

  1. What has been hardest about Covid? Who is looking to you for care / help / leadership in this season? Does that add an extra burden to a challenging season?
  2. Where do you feel the most uncertainty?
  3. Why shouldn’t uncertainty bother Christians? Try to come up with ten reasons and/or Bible verses or stories.
  4. Review the four questions. Which is the hardest to answer with your uncertainty? Which is the most helpful?
