Reaffirming the Covenant

28 Jun

Joshua 8:30, 34-35
Then Joshua built on Mount Ebal an altar to the LORD, the God of Israel…
Afterward, Joshua read all the words of the law – the blessings and the curses – just as it is written in the Book of the Law.  There was not a word of all that Moses had commanded that Joshua did not read to the whole assembly of Israel, including the women and children, and the aliens who lived among them.

Moses left instructions for the Children of Israel to complete after he died.  Joshua was to take them to Mt. Ebal.  As they came into that area they were to climb the sides of two mountains that faced each other.

The words of the entire law of Moses were then to be read aloud to them.  In this way they were to hear the law again and reaffirm their commitment to God and to His law.

It is always important to review what God has called us to.  From time to time we must come to a point in our lives where we can remember what was spoken to us.  Then, with faith rekindled, we reaffirm our commitment to see it through.  Sometimes all that is called for is a quiet, out of the way place to review where we have been and where we are going.

Is there some unfinished business between you and the Lord?  Go to Him today.  Let Him know, once more, that you are standing firm and will see your calling accomplished.  If you have been ignoring it, now would be a good time to pick it back up again.  Take some quality time today to talk with God.
