LESSON FOR NOVEMBER 23
JOSHUA THE NEW LEADER.
LESSON TEXT-Joshua 1:1-9
GOLDEN TEXT--e strong and of
good courage." Jos!.ua 1:9.

tions, families or individuals were not

gone off neglectful of his creatures.
nor has he left them to blind fate
or inflexible law. Attention is also
drawn to the time, "after the death
The call was clear and unquestion
ed, for the Lord 'spake." Our high
est responsibility is to that call which
comes from the highest source of au
thority. This call came in the time of
great need, Israel is without a lead
er. Then follow the first words of
Jehovah to this newly chosen leader
(v. 2) and which constitute his
charge, "Moses my servant Is dead,
now, therefore arise." This suggests
a prayerful attitude on the part of
Joshua, but in no way is it to be con
strued that Moses was a hindrance
to this forward march of the geople of
Tod. Rather, that Moses' work was
completed and on the basis of his
work an advance was to be made.
Obedience to Law.
The conditions laid upon Joshua
were: (1) Confidence due to this prom
ise of the presence of Jehoyah (v. 5).
The personal pronoun "I" is used
seven times in these nine verses as
though God would make confidence
doubly assured. But confidence alone
was not enough, hence the necessity
of "courage" (v. 6). Strength is due
to confidence and quietness, Isa. 30:
15, but courage is the active principle
which is the evidence of our strength
and courage. Conquest was not alone
conditioned upon courage (v. 6), but
also upon the sure foundation of the
word and oath of Jehovah. But
strength and courage are maintained
by obedience to law whether it be
physical, civil or spiritual, hence the
worids of verse 7, the possession of.
this land depended upon absolute un
flinching, invariable adherence and ob
servance of the law, "which Moses my
Confidence and Authority.
But Jehovah never leaves his own
(v. 5), Matt. 28:20, nor does he leave
-man to blind fate or fortuitous cir
cumstances. Therefore we read in
verse 8 the counsel of Jehovah as to
the method whereby Joshua and Is
rael may "prosper" (v. 7) or according
to the margin "do wisely," vis., they
shall meditate upon the books of the
law. This verse is enough for the
entire class session. The leader, be
- he preacher or teacher, who has any
doubt about the word of God, or'
stands dumb before the empty tomb
had better seek a new vocation for
he is the apostle of a dying, disinte
grating class or church and a decad
ent faith. The origin of man, the
mystery of life, the destiny of the
soul, demands the voice of confidence
and authority not of uncertainty and
doubt. True prosperity and wisdom
are conditioned upon our taking the
word of God as the man of our coun
sel, the light of our path, our daily
meditation. The definite result of
-such a course is set before Joshua,
and in addition he was promised the~
companionship (v. 9) of Jehovah every
step of the way. It is interesting in
. this connection to remember that
Joshua was associated with Moses in
the first experience of war in the hi.
tory of this young nation.
Conclusion. The greatest lesson be
fore us at this time is that of continu
ity of the purposes of God. As great
and important as Moses has been dur
ing his 40 years of leadership, yet he
was not necessary. The Instrument
of divine deliverance, direction and
discipline, yea, the voice of God to Is
rael, the receiver of their complaints,
and of their confessions, yet now he
has been removed. 'What a tremen
dous blank he must have left. Yet
.Israel is to go forward, there is to be
no halting in Its progress. God had
been training men for 40 years, one
of whose faith failed not at the sight
of the giants, one who had fellowship
with the old and is now to face the
new. We recall the words of John
Wesley, inscribed upon his memo
rial tablet in Westminster abbey, "God
buries his workmen, but carries on
his work." Each individual in the
long succession of leaders has his ap
pointed task, and as he is loyal com
pletes that task thereby preparing the
way for a new leader. The abiding
principles that condition each man's
success are loyalty and obedience.
The Golden Text is in substance
thrice repeated. First, Joshua was to
be strong and of good courage be
cause of the work ahead of him (v.68);
second, he was to be strong and cour
ageous in the observance of the law:
and lastly he was to be strong and
courageous in order to avoid the per
ils of fear and dismay which were
to beset the path of advance (V. 9).
A study of the remainder of this
chapter reveals not only the orderly
response of the people but that the
people. :.s well as God, also demand
ed ojf their leader that he should~"be
strong and of a good ccura;."
