CSSA Stage 2 – Junior Lesson 5: A New Leader

Moses: Israel’s Deliverer (CSSA Junior Stage 2 Lesson 5)

This week’s lesson focuses on the passing on of the truth from one generation to another. We’ll learn of the heart ache Moses felt at not being allowed to enter into the Promised Land, and yet the gentleness with which God deals with him in letting Moses view the whole land, and personally being responsible for the burial of the “meekest man on the earth”. You can just imagine those final moments of Moses’ life alone on that mountain with the God he had faithfully tried to serve, and now waiting for the resurrection of the dead.

Yet that is only half of the story – down among the tents of the nation the new leader had been chosen. Joshua, the servant of Moses, had been prepared for many years to lead God’s chosen nation and God had a special message to encourage him in this near impossible task.

We are soon leaving the dusty desert behind to enter the long awaited Promised Land!
