Tainted by Sin [Bible Reading 4/10 Week]
The story of Achan gives us a powerful picture of how one man’s sin can affect everyone around him. It shows us the terrible punishment for sin (death) and how God’s enemies are overcome. This story shows us the high cost of being tainted by sin and points forward to the glorious hope of seeing that sin dealt with on the cross.
