This week we jump into our reading and study of the IMMERSE: Kingdoms series. We start with the Old Testament book of Joshua. It’s quite a story of God’s provision of a Promised Land but also his call for us to obey his commands. No surprise, that’s still God’s M.O. (modus operandi). It’s how He works. He Promises. He Provides. And He demands that we obey His commands.
That’s one reason why it is so important to get into the Word of God, the Bible. We can read the history of God’s people, but we also get a sense of how God works. It is important to our personal lives as we face the challenges before us. What can we hope for? What has God actually promised, AND, what are His expectations of us?
We are still called to listen and obey. All the more reason to get into the Bible and see how it applies to our lives today. I really appreciate Joshua’s commitment towards the end of the book (Joshua 24:15) As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.
