Taking the Promised Land

I’m going to ask that, for a second, you imagine yourself in Joshua’s shoes.
Moses has just passed, and you’re now proud leader of an estimated 2 million loud-spoken and stubborn Hebrews. Your objective? To [finally] get these people into the land God has promised them – a land that you’ve spent 40 years waiting for. You’ve seen the land and how good it is, so you know God’s word about it and promise to be true – now all you have to do is actually get there. Easy right?
Errrr…Not so much. And you’ll soon see why.
SO! God gives you your first set of instructions to get to the promised land:
“Cross the Jordan!” He says.
