It has been awhile since I've read the Bible in a careful manner, and I'm glad that Faith reminded me to do so. Today's reading from Deuteronomy 3:21 – 29 was about how Moses was forbidden to bring Israel into the promised land. All his life he had been preparing for this task, yet it was not him but Joshua who would be the one to complete the journey. God told Moses to go atop Mount Pisgah and view the promised land from there, but he was not allowed to enter it.
One can only imagine the type of pain that Moses felt, yet it is a foreshadowing of things to come. The Law gives to us a glimpse of the life God wants us to lead, but falls short in bringing us there. Joshua (also Hebrew for Jesus) would complete the journey. We need so much to depend on the One who saved us. I know I do.
