Stones: Marking the Moments of God's Work

Stones: Marking the Moments of God's Work

We see that in ancient times people would mark the moments of God’s work by placing stones like a memorial. They also used stones to prepare for what was ahead by making altars and renewing their covenant with God. We too can look back and remember and look forward and renew.


January 3, 2016 | Joshua 8:30-35 | beginnings

What do you want to accomplish this year? Do you have financial goals, relational goals, personal goals? Have you put any thought into God’s plan for you this year? In the book of Joshua, God led the Israelites into the promised land and then instructed them to begin this new phase of their existence as a nation by pulling away and renewing their covenant with the Lord. We too can proceed into this new year by renewing our dependence in Jesus Christ and our obedience to his will.


December 27, 2015 | Joshua 3-4 | beginnings, children

When you look back on the previous year, was it everything you hoped for? Was last year something you want to forget? Here is the more important question: are you looking back at last year and forward to next year through God’s eyes? God told Joshua to prepare the Israelites to enter the promised land by following him by faith and remembering his faithfulness in their past. We too can remember God’s faithfulness to us and commit to follow him.
