Joshua 22

God’s faithfulness has been the dominant theme in the entire book of Joshua. After centuries of waiting, and nearly a decade of battles, the time had come to settle. A part of settling into their inheritance as God’s children would be to remain faithful followers of God in this next phase of living in the Promised Land. The final 3 chapters of Joshua turn their attention the people and the roads they are to walk to be faithful to the Faithful One. In our chapter this week, chapter 22, we will see the seriousness with which God’s people take their calling to be faithful as a civil war is threatened as a result of a potential turning away from the Lord, but then averted.
