Nothing undone

“Just as the LORD had commanded Moses his servant, so Moses commanded Joshua, and so Joshua did. He left nothing undone of all that the LORD had commanded Moses. So Joshua took all that land…” Joshua 11:15-16

Joshua gets slept on (which is a slang phrase meaning he is generally ignored), mostly because he stands in the shadow of the great Moses. Yet, Joshua is a shadow of one greater than Moses — one greater than all!

The greater than Joshua (who shares his name, by the way) fulfilled these verses in marvelous fashion. Did he not keep the law of Moses in all its particulars? Did he not observe the ten commandments in flawless, spiritual perfection? His life was one continuous good work—or to view it from another biblical angle, one continuous loving of God and people.

You may have heard of the infamous video game killstreak. Well, here was a lifestreak of heavenly wonder. Jesus took all that land for us single-handedly, spilling his own blood for our sin, putting the principalities to open shame, granting us eternal life, guaranteeing all of God’s promises and blessings to us, and filling our ledgers with his spotless righteousness.
