Work till the job is done and then enjoy the inheritance that awaits!
Pray The Word and Prepare for The Word
Lord I hope for the day when we get to unite with you in the ultimate promised land of the New Heaven and Earth!
Read - Joshua 22-24
Chapter 22 shows the tribes that had already claimed their inheritance to the east of the Jordan being able to return to their land. This is after they have fulfilled their work and their purpose. What an encouraging picture for us as Christians! Stay in the race till it's finished!
Chapter 24 serves as a charge and a reminder to the people to continue to serve God. 24:15 is a favorite of many bible challenges, 'Choose this day whom you will serve. As for me and my house, we will serve The Lord'.
Lord, help me to find contentment in what you have provided.
Why did the altar in Chapter 22 almost bring about a civil war?
Joshua completes his ministry with a charge to Know (24:2-14), Love (24:14) and Serve (24:15-28) God.
