A Line In The Sand

January 28, 2024

As we read today’s key passage, we see Joshua is the commander- in-chief and leader of the nation of Israel. He has led the people into the Promised Land that God has promised them, but he wants to make sure they keep that land and prosper in that land. He wants them to live happily ever after. But on this day, he is not talking as the commander-in-chief or as a political leader; he is talking as a dad who has a family. He makes this momentous statement: “As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord” (v.15). In effect, he drew a line in the sand. He said, “Even if no one else comes to stand on this side of the line, my family and I will.” He chose to lead his family to do three things that I am going to ask you to do as well.

In this series

Generational Discipleship

Over the course of four weeks, we are going to embark on an effort called “Generational Discipleship.” God is for all generations. There is no generation gap with God. He is faithful to every generation, but He also wants every generation to be faithful to Him, to know Him, love Him, serve Him, and worship Him. He wants every generation to always be sharing with the next generation the truth of the God of all generations. So what does that look like for us? That’s what we’re going to discuss in this series.

Bible Reference

“Now therefore fear the LORD and serve him in sincerity and in faithfulness. Put away the gods that your fathers served beyond the River and in Egypt, and serve the LORD.
And if it is evil in your eyes to serve the LORD, choose this day whom you will serve, whether the gods your fathers served in the region beyond the River, or the gods of the Amorites in whose land you dwell. But as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD.”
