1. Start with a prayer

2. Engage one another (15-30 mins)
– What are some things you find hard/impossible to overcome? (e.g. a particular situation, a sin, a relationship, etc.)

3. Engage the mind (15-20 mins)
– Read the passage. What was God’s command for the Israelites to do?
– Put yourself in the shoes of Joshua or the Israelites, how would you respond to the situation? How would you respond to God’s command?
– How did Joshua and the Israelites overcome it?
– What does “Jericho” symbolize?

4. Engage the heart (15-20 mins)
– What is the significance of overcoming the “Jericho” in your life?
– Think through the answer you provided in ‘Engage with one another’. How do you feel about this “Jericho”? How is God speaking to you through the passage? (Note to leaders: Provide a safe space for vulnerability and confidentiality)

5. Engage the hands (15-20 mins)
– What do you plan to do in order to overcome the “Jericho” in your life? Identify 1 thing that you want to start doing today as a response to God’s message through Joshua 6? How are you going to do it?

6. Engage with God in prayer (20-30 mins)
– Praise God for He is faithful and trustworthy. Thank God for overcoming sin and death through Jesus and we are now victorious over our sins and shame.
– Ask God to help us identify the Jerichos in our life that prevent us from enjoying our life and God’s presence.
– Ask God for a repentant heart to turn away from our bondages and to enjoy our life through Jesus.
