And Joshua rose early in the morning; and they removed from Shittim, and came to Jordan, he and all the children of Israel, and lodged there before they passed over. And it came to pass after three days, that the officers went through the host; And they commanded the people, saying, When ye see the ark of the covenant of the LORD your God, and the priests the Levites bearing it, then ye shall remove from your place, and go after it. Yet there shall be a space between you and it, about two thousand cubits by measure: come not near unto it, that ye may know the way by which ye must go: for ye have not passed this way heretofore. (Jos 3:1-4)
He challenged us as GOD's people to get up, get focused, get ready, and get going.
We are GOD's people on GOD's mission and must get up from our complacency and out of our comfort zone to do the work of GOD.
Arms won't do it, politics won't do it, judges won't do it. We must take the Gospel we live in the Power of GOD to the people who need it.
We are GOD's people and so must focus on Him and the work He has for us to do.
All else that distracts or deceives must be put away while we look only unto Jesus.
We are GOD's people and need to be sanctified, discipled, and prepared to take the land.
Only with the Gospel of Jesus Christ can people's hearts and minds be changed.
We are GOD's people and must follow Him wherever He leads us, in complete surrender and submission to our Lord.
Whether it is across the world, across the country, or across the street, we must be obedient to all that GOD asks of us.
Are you willing to get up from your place, get focused on Jesus, get ready in the Word, and get going where He sends you?
