a mission manual

Joshua 1:1-3 (JDV)

Joshua 1:1 It happened after the death of Moses Yahveh’s servant. Yahveh spoke to Joshua son of Nun, Moses’s assistant:
Joshua 1:2 “Moses my servant is dead. Now you and all the people get ready to cross over the Jordan to the land I am giving the Israelites.
Joshua 1:3 I have given you every place where the sole of your foot marches, just like I said to Moses.

a mission manual

Joshua is the mission manual of the Old Testament. It helps us understand and accomplish the missions that God gives us.

God is not calling us to fly to Israel so we can do battle with the Canaanites. That was the mission he gave Joshua and his generation. The missions he gives you and me are different than that. He wants us to make disciples of all nations, to love him with all our hearts, and to love our neighbors as ourselves. But I have discovered that the lessons we learn from the book of Joshua are just as valid and helpful for my missions as they were for Joshua’s.

Lord, teach us how to accomplish your mission each day.
