  4. WHY Were they Content? • Compassion – “Poor people, they are so misguided and helpless.” • Convenience – “It would be a lot easier for us if we just moved in and learned to ‘get along’ with these people.” • Opportunity to gain a resource- “IF we leave them alive, we can use them as SLAVES!”

  5. Consequences • A snare & Temptation- Judges 2:1-4 • Next generation forsook the Lord – Judges 2:10-12 • Idolatry continued, in the greater part, until the exile many hundreds of years later!

  6. Lessons from Israel • Matthew 5:39-47 “turn the other cheek to him also” “love your enemies” • Matthew 5:13-16 “you are the salt of the earth” you are the light of the world” “let your light so shine”

  7. Lessons from Israel • Have to walk a Fine Line of Balance: • Living IN the World – 1 Corinthians 5:10 • Not being OF the World- Romans 12:2; 1 John 2:15-17 • 1 Corinthians 15:33

  8. Sources of the Failure: • Rash Covenant w/o Consulting God • How Often do We fail to consult God? • Can always pray – 1 Thessalonians 5:17 • 2 Timothy 2:15 • James 1:5,6

  12. Lessons from Israel • Israel Stopped Looking Toward God, but Look Toward Their Neighbors! • How many “New Ideas” are Not Based on God’s Word, but recent trends in the world?

  13. Lessons from Israel • Did Not Fully Conquer The Land! • Have we Fully Conquered the “Old Man of Sin?” • Romans 6:5,6 • Colossians 3:5

  14. Galatians 2:20 "I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me.”
