TOPIC: PREACH THE LORD’S GOODNESS
"Command the priests carrying the ark of the covenant law to come up out of the Jordan.” So Joshua commanded the priests, "Come up out of the Jordan.” And the priests came up out of the river carrying the ark of the covenant of the Lord. No sooner had they set their feet on the dry ground than the waters of the Jordan returned to their place and ran at flood stage as before.
On the tenth day of the first month the people went up from the Jordan and camped at Gilgal on the eastern border of Jericho. And Joshua set up at Gilgal the twelve stones they had taken out of the Jordan. He said to the Israelites, "In the future when your descendants ask their parents, ‘What do these stones mean?’ tell them, ‘Israel crossed the Jordan on dry ground.’ For the Lord your God dried up the Jordan before you until you had crossed over. The Lord your God did to the Jordan what he had done to the Red Sea when he dried it up before us until we had crossed over. He did this so that all the peoples of the earth might know that the hand of the Lord is powerful and so that you might always fear the Lord your God.”
We as Christians do not have to just remember the goodness of the Lord but, also, to preach it to others. People tend to believe and accept the goodness of the Lord when we tell what he Lord has done for us. It is great to preach the bible but we also have to let them know our story. Yes the Lord want us to remember his goodness and also preach so that we and other could fear (reverence) him as our creator and savior.
