Follow Your Captain
Text: Joshua 5:13-6:27
Joshua fought the battle of Jericho, Jericho, Jericho…Are you singing yet? You know if a Bible story has been made into a Sunday School song, it’s a good one! I’m guessing you are already familiar with the story, and if not, please read the passage. God is finally going to lead Joshua into battle and fight for Israel in a way only God can. But before the Israelites marched around the city, God came to Joshua and introduced Himself with a new name. Jehovah-Sabaoth: The Lord of Hosts. I like to think of it this way- Captain. And like a good solider, Joshua followed the orders from his Captain.
You are a soldier of Christ, and your Captain wants to lead you into battle. Will you follow Him no matter how incredulous the battle plan may seem? Will you be a good soldier? Or will you try to mutiny and take control of the situation? Make a decision today to follow your Captain.
