In this sermon, Bishop Claude Alexander exams and compares two pivotal and miraculous acts of God for his people: when God parted the waters of the Red Sea to allow the Israelites to exit out of bondage in Egypt and when God separated the waters of the Jordan River so the Israelites could enter the Promised Land. In both events, the people are faced with obstacles and God helps them overcome by bringing them through their challenges. These events show that God is a God of exit and a God of entrance. There’s no point on our path to purpose that can be blocked and we should praise God for the many times and ways He has brought us through our own Red Seas and Jordan Rivers.
Scripture: Joshua 4: 19-24 NRSV
