We examine the person of Joshua and his leadership in bringing the Israelites into the Promised Land. For Christians, the Promised Land is being at the centre of God’s will - with peace and joy and victory over all sin.
Through studying the conquest of the Canaanite cities, the division of the land and the last days of Joshua, we learn some valuable lessons: Obey God, even if you don’t understand His will. Sometimes, God will give us a strategy to overcome; at other times, He just requires obedience.
The second lesson is to eradicate secret sin. Like the cities the Israelites did not conquer, sins we leave unsettled will become problems in our lives. This is how we can enter the Promised Land.
