Is there sin in your camp

How to Get There

The Isrealites had just destroyed the city of Jericho, then suffered a defeat at the town of Ai. The defeat came beacuse one man violated God's command about the plunder of Jericho.

Is there sin in your camp?

    The camp of your family?
    The camp of your church?
    The camp of assorted levels of government?
    The camp of your business?

What do we do about it?

    Recognize it for what it is.
    Seek forgiveness and turn from the sin.
    In a corporate body (church, government, business) select godly leaders
    Confess our sins, corporate and personal, and God will forgive

(read Daniel 9:1-4 for a sample prayer

Things to Watch For

Sometimes God listens and still lets his people stumble on their own.
