Joshua 1:8 How can we live like Christ and obey God unless we are intimately familiar with the Word? We can’t! Resolve now to spend this year regularly reading and studying God’s word individually and alongside of fellow brothers and sisters in Christ.
Sin causes us to distrust the promises of God and the faithfulness of God’s character, ultimately forcing isolation from God’s nearness. Through the story of Joshua 7, we learn the seriousness of sin and holiness of God, and treasure in Christ’s provision to secure for his people God’s presence.
