Day 003: Journey Through the Bible in a Year
Focus Verses for Today: Joshua 4:19-24
Take a moment and pray, asking for understanding of today’s reading. Read Joshua 1-5. Let’s journey!
Commentary: Joshua is the first book in the books of history in the Bible. Joshua picks up where the Jewish Torah ends, with the death of Moses and Joshua being called to lead the Israelites out of the desert and to victory in the Promised Land. The Lord reassures the Israelites, once again, that He is and will be with them in their upcoming battles. The first five chapters of Joshua focus on the spiritual preparations of the Israelites for taking Jericho. Before the Israelites can have the Promised Land, they must make themselves pure before the Lord.
Focus Verses: 4:19-24 – Joshua established a monument to remember what had happened on that day. Why was this important for future generations? What reminders do we have today?
