June 8, 2014 – Morning Worship
Monday – Joshua 7
Read through Joshua 7 – what are the lessons for us? For you?
Tuesday – Joshua 7:1,26; Exodus 32:1–35; Romans 1:18; 5:9; Colossians 3:6; 1 Thessalonians 1:9–10; Hebrews 3:7–19
See in these passages the reality of God’s wrath. In Christ we are saved from God’s wrath, so do these passages have any application for us? For you?
Wednesday – Joshua 7:6–9; I Samuel 4:1–11; Psalm 73; Habakkuk 1:1–13
God’s wrath, or discipline, or affliction on His people can lead to great confusion and doubt about God’s purposes for His people. How do we get the right perspective as we walk by faith?
Thursday – Joshua 7:1,11,15,24–25; Numbers 16; Romans 5:12–21
Achan took the devoted things and Israel is accused of sinning. Achan is to be punished and his family and livestock are punished with him. Why? Is this fair?
Friday – Joshua 1:5,9; 3:7,10; 6:27; 7:12b; Exodus 33:12–16; Matthew 5:27–30; I Corinthians 5
Nothing is more crucial to God’s people than to have God’s presence with them. In Joshua 7:12b we see God’s presence is tied to proper repentance and church discipline. How should that affect our lives?
Saturday – Joshua 7:16–26; Genesis 18:25; Exodus 32:25–29; Numbers 25:1–9
Many think the punishment on Achan and his family was way too extreme. Do you agree? Why or why not?
