Scripture: Joshua 7–8

Setbacks, Sin, and Surrender

Joshua 7-8

Thrill of victory followed by the agony of defeat.

Problem of sin.  7:1

  • Sin’s pattern: I saw. I coveted.  I took.  (vv.20-21)
  • Sin’s consequences: 
    • Defeat.  7:2-5
    • Destruction.  7:13-25

 

Yet sin does not have the final word.

  • Ai is defeated.  Joshua 8
  • Valley of Achor is turned into a door of hope.  Hosea 2:14-15
  • Another Joshua, Jesus, is God’s final solution.  Ephesians 2:3-4

 

Take Home Idea: The consequences of sin are real and deadly, but sin does not have the final word.
