V. 1-6 The people under Joshua are obedient and reverent before the ark (a picture of the Lord's presence.) God had His proper place at the head, leading them. In the Christian assembly Christ is our Head.
V. 7-17 Sure victory promised. One more step of faith. Notice verse 14, it doesn't say "into the Jordan" but it says "over". Not only can believers say that "Christ died for us" (that is pictured in the Israelites' crossing the Red Sea in the book of Exodus), but the believer can also say that "I am crucified with Christ" (pictured in this crossing of the Jordan river).
