In Joshua 5:2-3, God called for all Israelite men to be circumcised. The result was that God “rolled away” the reproach of Egypt (Joshua 5:9). In the New Testament, God “rolled away” something else. Read Luke 24:1-3 to find out what it is. In both texts, sacrifice precedes the lifting of the curse (or “rolling away”). What needs to be rolled away in your life? What might God be asking you to sacrifice?
This question may be a little personal to share in the comments below but we’d still love to hear your thoughts regarding the Joshua series. What is God teaching you through the sermons? How is the story of Joshua making an impact on your life?
