7 Growth Group Bible Studiesin the OT book of JOSHUA
Joshua is a book about a Land. We read the account of how the Israelites fought the Canaanites and took possession of their land.
Joshua is a book about a promise. The land that the Israelites claim was promised to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob and their descendants. It was promised to them, by the LORD.
Joshua is abook about the LORD. It is the LORD who brings the nation of Israel to the flooded Jordan river, and across the river. It is the LORD who drives out the nations before Israel, and fights their battles for them. The LORD does all this because He is faithful to His promises.
Joshua is a book about learning to fear the LORD and faithfully serve Him alone. As we read the book of Joshua we witness the fickle faith of Israel, the steadfast promises and power of God, and the constant reminders that the LORD is the God of all the earth – we too must fear and serve Him alone.
“Now fear the LORD and serve him with all faithfulness. Throw away the gods your ancestorsworshipped beyond the RiverEuphratesand in Egypt, and serve the LORD.” Joshua 24:14 (NIV)
