Prepare Yourself for Teamwork

Joshua commands the people to get ready for the possession of the nation-place to go with the nation-people of God. Further, he instructs the tribes whose inheritance was east of the Jordan to come help their brethren fight west of the river. The text even implies that they are working with their brethren before they are finished with their own work. Their response is unifying, submissive, and motivating – especially in their reminder to Joshua to be what God calls him to be, strong and courageous. Obviously, this brings up a series of questions for us. Are we preparing to fulfill what God has called us to? Are we willing to sacrifice so that our whole nation-people can be all God desires? Are we unifying, submissive, and motivating? And once again, are we strong and courageous?
