Joshua - 1

the holy God who destroys transgressors

Joshua 24:19-21 (JDV)

Joshua 24:19 But Joshua told the people, “You will not be able to worship Yahveh, because he is a holy God. He is a jealous God; he will not forgive your transgressions and sins.
Joshua 24:20 If you abandon Yahveh and worship foreign gods, he will turn against you, harm you, and completely destroy you, after he has been good to you.”
Joshua 24:21 “No!” the people answered Joshua. “We will worship Yahveh.”

the holy God who destroys transgressors

Some people think that God is too good to destroy transgressors — that no matter what a person does, he or she will always live eternally because God cannot destroy his creation. But Joshua warned his people who intended to worship God that they had better be sincere, because our holy and jealous God destroys those who reject him.

Lord, make us a people who sincerely worship you, and stay faithful to you.
