Joshua 23. As he nears the end of his life Joshua reminds the people of Israel what God has done for them and urges them to remain faithful, reminding them of the terrible consequences of not doing so.
Joshua 13-21. God has promised us a wonderful inheritance, summarised in Jesus' promise that He had come to bring us fulness of life. But we must be bold and persistent in pushing in and taking all that God has promised us.
Joshua 10:1-28. As the people of God face yet another conflict two key themes emerge - 1. we either choose to face God and respond to his invitation to be in relationship with Him, or turn our backs on Him, with serious consequences for either choice; 2. and a faithful God calls us to be faithful in all we do.
Joshua 5:13 - 6:27. As soon as the Israelites set foot in the Promised Land they encounter an obstacle that must be overcome before they can go any further - Jericho. The lessons they learn as God teaches them how to overcome it will set them in good stead for the future; and we can learn and apply the same lessons we take our own 'Promised Land.'
Joshua 3. In an act of extraordinary faith and redemption Joshua leads the people of God through an impenetrable barrier - the Jordan at full flood - prefiguring the work that Jesus would do on the cross a thousand years later.
Joshua 2. As Joshua sent spies to look at the Promised Land before they entered, so we need to know what our 'Promised Land' - the 'life in all its fulness' that Jesus promised - looks like. We also see a foreshadowing go the Gospel in the story of Rahab.
