And Joshua said unto the children of Israel, How long are ye slack to go to possess the land, which the LORD GOD of your fathers hath given you? Give out from among you three men for each tribe: and I will send them, and they shall rise, and go through the land, and describe it according to the inheritance of them; and they shall come again to me. And they shall divide it into seven parts: Judah shall abide in their coast on the south, and the house of Joseph shall abide in their coasts on the north. Ye shall therefore describe the land into seven parts, and bring the description hither to me, that I may cast lots for you here before the LORD our GOD. But the Levites have no part among you; for the priesthood of the LORD is their inheritance: and Gad, and Reuben, and half the tribe of Manasseh, have received their inheritance beyond Jordan on the east, which Moses the servant of the LORD gave them. (Jos 18:3-7)
GOD's people are to trust Him and following the Word and the Spirit to remove that which sin in their lives, we are to take possession and wholly live the Christian life in, through, and for Christ, who lives within us. We are to be holy for He is holy, we are to lay aside every weight and the sIn which doth so easily beset us. We are to grow in Him, putting every idle thought, vain imagination, and stronghold of the mind under His victory, surrendered to Him on His terms, and transformed by the renewing of our minds through the engrafted Word of GOD. We are to hold fast to our profession, walking worthy of the vocation where He has called us, and glorifying our GOD in all things, for He alone is worthy.
He has called us to minister to others, taking the Word of reconciliation as His ambassadors to those around us who are hurting and in need, that they might know Him and see Jesus in us, the hope of Glory. He has commanded us to love one another as we grow in His Word and disciple one another, conformed to the image of His Son. He has commissioned us to witness, proclaiming the Good News of Jesus Christ, and as we go, sharing the Gospel to all who will hear that they might repent of their sins and believe in His finished and perfect work on the Cross of Calvary and receive eternal life in His Name.
For GOD is not willing that any should perish, but that all would come to repentance and the knowledge of the the Truth. Jesus loves you and wants to establish a covenant relationship with you that is real and personal. Surrender to Him on His terms and He will give you a brand new life of discipleship and fellowship with Him that is abundant and everlasting. GOD calls you to trust Him and what He has already done for you to pay your sIn debt. He has provided the only way of reconciliation with GOD, forgiveness from GOD, and Salvation through Jesus Christ, the Son of GOD who is GOD the Son, to give you a new life in Christ. Turn away from yourself and your sIn and turn to Him alone for eternal Life, now and always.
