TOPIC - THE ACCURSED THING

Read Joshua 7:1-13

MEMORISE

Nevertheless the solid foundation of God stands, having this seal: " The Lord knows those who are His," and, "Let everyone who names the name of Christ depart from iniquity" (2 Timothy 2:19).


EXPOSITION

Accursed things are things that invoke God's displeasure upon man (Gal. 5:19-21). They are things devoted to destruction or declared as evil.
It was a single person that sinned and the children of Israel were said to have trespassed. This is a serious warning to every child of God. A singular act committed by a person can wreck havoc on families, churches or even nations (v.1). No wonder, Job made sacrifice regularly for his children, should in case they sinned against God (Job 1:5).

It also calls for our concern for others, to watch over one another so as to prevent sin. Many husbands/ fathers today are the causes of the predicaments or challenges in their homes, simply because they have taken accursed things, just like Achan in our Bible text for today. His singular act of disobedient led to the death of many people, including his household ( Jos. 7:24-26).

In the same vein, there are wives/ mothers whose actions have led the family into big problems. The children are not left out, as some of their actions or inactions might backfire, bringing serious problems to their parents and families. Be careful, don't be a problem - causer. Instead, be a problem - solver in your home and society. Remember: ....whatever a man sows, that he will also reap (Gal. 6:7).

The Church of God is not left out as we have so many 'Achans' in there. The wrath of God was on Israel until they fetched out Achan (the troubler of God's people). No wonder, there is a halt to the free flow and move of the Holy Spirit in so many churches and our nations today. The way out is true confession of sins, repentance, and readiness to forsake sins (2 Chro. 7:14). God is ready to save, deliver and restore.

 PRAYER POINTS

1. Lord, please open my eyes to the things that are causing Your displeasure upon my life, and help me to do away with them.
2. Father, open our understanding to those things that make us fall and flee before our enemies, and help us to overcome them.
3. Father, have mercy upon our nation, help our leaders to lead this nation back to You and do things aright.
