    However, what things were gain to me, these have I counted loss for Christ. Yes most assuredly, and I count all things to be loss for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus, my Lord, for whom I suffered the loss of all things, and count them nothing but refuse, that I may gain Christ and be...

    For a righteous man falls seven times, and rises up again; But the wicked are overthrown by calamity. Proverbs 24:16 WEBI felt disgusted with myself because I had tried so hard, but in a moment of weakness returned to my old habits. Now like an injured animal, I just wanted to be left alone. Soon I ...

    Jesus answered him, 'Simon, I have something to tell you.' He said, 'Teacher, say on.' A certain lender had two debtors. The one owed five hundred denarii, and the other fifty. When they couldn't pay, he forgave them both. Which of them therefore will love him most?' Simon answered, 'He, I suppose, ...

The River Crossing

  • After the death of Moses the servant of the LORD, the LORD said to Joshua the son of Nun, Moses’ assistant, Moses my servant is dead. Now therefore arise, go over this Jordan, you and all this people, into the land that I am giving to them, to the people of Israel. Every place that the sole of your foot will tread upon I have given to you, just as I promised to Moses. Joshua 1:1–3 ESV 

    Painful memories came to Joshua’s mind as the Lord told him to arise and cross over to the promised land. Joshua was now about eighty years old. Forty years ago they had gone to explore this land, but when it came time to cross over, instead of obeying God the people became paralyzed with fear and wanted to return to Egypt.

    After wandering in the wilderness until that generation died, the Lord had now brought them back to this place and told them again to cross over. Joshua had to ask himself, would the people go this time, or would we take another lap around the mountain? I am sure that he breathed a sigh of relief once they had crossed the Jordan river and were on the other side.

    Now I want to remind you, although you once fully knew it, that Jesus, who saved a people out of the land of Egypt, afterward destroyed those who did not believe (Jude 1:5 ESV). If you feel that God is telling you to do something, do not let fear hold you back. You can go so far and accomplish so much if you will just step out in faith and trust Him. Be the one that trusted God and crossed the river.
