In this passage of God’s Word, we see Joshua at the end of his life, addressing the leaders of Israel. In this last address, Joshua pleads with the leaders to keep Israel faithful to God. By taking a look at the portion of God’s Word, we too can learn how we can remain faithful.
1. Reminisce on God’s faithfulness, so you can live a holy life
Josh. 23:1-10, Eph. 2:8-9, Heb. 4:14
2. Remember not to add to, or subtract from God’s Word
Josh. 23:6, Rev. 22:18-19, Prov 30:5-6, Deut. 12:32, Matt. 5:18, Jer. 17:9-10
3. Realize the consequences
Josh. 23:11-16, Gal. 6:7-8, Heb. 12:11, Prov. 29:15
Reflection Questions

1. Read Joshua 23:1-10. Joshua recounts what God did for the Israelites to get them into the promised land, and because of what God has done, then points to the Israelites to remain faithful. Take some time and recount what the Lord has done for you, and list it in the space below.
2. Looking at your answers from question #1, which ones are the most powerful for you to remember, in order that you might remain faithful to the Lord in the future?
3. Keeping in mind your answer from question #2, what practical way(s) can you remember what God has done, particularly how you answered question #2, in order that you will remain faithful to God? An example of this might be writing your answer from question #2 on a note card and putting it on your mirror or in your car so you see it everyday.
4. Keeping in mind your answers from above, what would the consequence be if you don’t remain faithful in the future?
5. What is your biggest take away about how this passage affects your life? What do you need to work on? Who can you share this with and ask you to keep you accountable to accomplishing this?
