Keep right on to the end of the road …

Joshua 13:1-14:15
God has given the land to Israel. Still, there was the challenge: ‘there is still very much land to be possessed’ (13:1). ‘God…has blessed us in Christ with every spiritual blessing’. Now, we must ‘lead a life worthy of His calling’ (Ephesians 1:3; 4:1). ‘Joshua was old and advanced in years’. Caleb was ‘eighty five years old’ (13:1; 14:10). These were men of faith. Forty five years earlier, they had called on the people to trust and obey: ‘The Lord…will bring us into this land…Only, do not rebel against the Lord’ (14:7-10; Numbers 14:6-9). They had persevered: ‘I press on…’. They had been preserved: ‘Kept by the power of God’ (Philippians 3:14; 1 Peter 1:5). ‘I am still as strong to this day as I was’, ‘We will serve the Lord’ (14:11; 24:15). This is faith – for yesterday, today and tomorrow!
