“First things first” is a common phrase among the Christian community. Joshua notes in this passage to do something—do it first—foremost, and today. In doing the first thing, it will prepare you for tomorrow. Not just any tomorrow. A tomorrow full of amazing things. Performed by the Lord himself, who will be among you.
The first thing is to consecrate yourselves to the Lord. Merriam-Webster Online describes the term-“Consecration is the solemn dedication to a special purpose or service. The word ‘consecration’ literally means ‘to associate with the sacred.’ Persons, places, or things can be consecrated. A synonym of ‘to consecrate’ is to sanctify; an antonym is to desecrate.”
We have the privilege to associate with the sacred every day. The Lord himself. A sole dedication to the holy one. If we want amazing things to take place in our lives—first things first. Associating with Jesus today, expecting amazing for tomorrow!
