Cling to the King

Cling to the King

Joshua 23

In our text this week, Joshua has aged quite a bit and Israel is in a place of rest in the land. Just as Joshua found his strength and courage by reflecting on the Lord’s faithfulness to Moses, he will now encourage Israel’s future leaders to do the same thing. He will challenge the next wave of leaders to remember all they saw the Lord do under Joshua’s leadership, and from those memories, he hopes they will cling to the Lord and not those around them. We, too, are called to cling to the Lord, and not the idols of our world, for He is the one, true, and faithful God.
