Reading: Joshua 7:1-26
Key Verse: Joshua 7: 11
Israel has sinned; they have violated my covenant, which I commanded them to keep. They have taken some of the devoted things; they have stolen, they have lied, they have put them with their own possessions.
The citizens of Tory where unaware of the soldiers inside the Trojan horse left by the enemy forces. This is like sin; the enemy within. Sometimes like the citizens of Tory we are totally unaware of its presence in our lives.
God does not trivialize sin. All sin will be punished. This is good news, since God ultimately will see to it that absolute justice will be done. But this is also bad news for us personally since we will be punished for our sin, unless someone is punished in our place. God’s remedy for sin is substitution. God in the person of Jesus took our punishment on the cross.
