Word (Joshua 1.1-9)

Joshua begins where our spiritual lives begin...with a word from God. In Joshua 1.1-9 we see that God's Word is:
  • A word of revelation, inviting us to enter into life and mission with God
  • A word of possibility, opening up new worlds and futures before us
  • A word of tradition, linking us with the past as well as the future
  • A word that nourishes, calling us to chew on and digest it
  • A word that commands, requiring us to order our lives by it
  • A word that sustains, strengthening us to face our challenges with courage
