After walking in the wilderness for 40 years, Joshua was commissioned to lead Israel into the Land of Promise. The words of God were very clear: “Every place on which the sole of your feet treads, I have given it to you…”. They had to take action and destroy all the Canaanites from that land! Unfortunately, they did not fully obey the Lord. Reading this story through the eyes of the New Testament, we have to seriously think about the following: Two thousand years ago JESUS uttered the following words on the Cross: IT IS FINISHED! The Veil was rent from top to bottom. Access into our “Land of Promise” was given. God reconciled humanity to Himself through Christ, not counting their trespasses against them! Question: How many of us are still living as aliens in our land of Promise…?
