As I was reading another re-telling of the Exodus, I was struck by how important it is to God that Israel know their history. How many times is the Exodus recounted?
And then I saw the trap I had fallen into of thinking this was their story, the telling of how God rescued their family/nation.
No. This is our story. Not just in a spiritual/sermonic application sort of way, but we are a part of the family that was rescued from Egypt. Not many of us may claim to be descendants according to the flesh. But by faith, we are children of Abraham. Let us rejoice in what God has done for Joshua and all our forefathers in the faith.
