Joshua 1 An Ironman is a long-distance triathlon – 3.86km swim in open water, followed by 180km on a bike, and then a marathon to finish off. It’s not for the fainthearted. But it takes just as much strength and courage to be a Christian. God calls us to be strong and courageous – and tells us how to do it.
Isaiah 5:1-30 Some see God as a doddery, toothless, old grandfather figure who is kind and well-meaning but harmless. The picture we get in the Bible of the God who is actually there is quite different. He’s no joke. He’s dangerous and we mess with him at our peril. And so if we are wise, we will get serious about God. This series of talks from Isaiah is a chance to do just that.
