DAILY BIBLE STUDY: Joshua 4-6
VERSE OF THE DAY:
“Then he spoke to the children of Israel, saying: “When your children ask their fathers in time to come, saying, ‘What are these stones?’ then you shall let your children know, saying, ‘Israel crossed over this Jordan on dry land’; for the LORD your God dried up the waters of the Jordan before you until you had crossed over, as the LORD your God did to the Red Sea, which He dried up before us until we had crossed over, that all the peoples of the earth may know the hand of the LORD, that it is mighty, that you may fear the LORD your God forever.”” (Joshua 4:21-24)
REFLECTION NOTES AND LESSONS LEARNED:
Our God is the Awesome God (Psalm 47:2)! With God all things are possible (Matthew 19:26). In today’s study of the Bible, we read about how the people of Israel cross the River of Jordan on dry land, and twelve memorial stones were taken from the Jordan River as the people of Israel crossed the river, the people of Israel performed circumcision as commanded by God, and they observed the Passover at Gilgal, and we also read about the fall of Jericho. As believers in God, it is always good to keep in mind that, the Lord Jesus Christ is the Good Shepherd (John 10:14), and the Lord Jesus is the Chief Commander of God’s Army (Matthew 25:31-32). Jesus rightly receives worship, because Jesus is the Son of God, and Jesus is also God (John 1:1, John 1:14, and John 3:16-17). Jesus is the King of Kings, and the Lord of Lords (1 Corinthians 15:57, 1 Timothy 6:14-16, and Revelations 19:16). If you are not yet saved by God, you can make the choice today to trust in the Lord Jesus Christ as your personal Lord and Savior, and you will be saved by God (John 3:16-17). The guidance that God gives to us stands forever (Psalm 33:11). Thank God for His wisdom, knowledge, and understanding! Amen.
WORDS OF JESUS:
“When the Son of Man comes in His glory, and all the holy angels with Him, then He will sit on the throne of His glory. All the nations will be gathered before Him, and He will separate them one from another, as a shepherd divides his sheep from the goats.” (Matthew 25:31-32)
“All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” (Matthew 28:18-20)
“For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved.” (John 3:16-17)
“If you abide in My word, you are My disciples indeed. And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.” (John 8:31-32)
“Most assuredly, I say to you, before Abraham was, I AM.” (John 8:58)
“I am the good shepherd; and I know My sheep, and am known by My own.” (John 10:14)
