Old Testament Lesson

Every individual has a moment, a moment when they feel God move.  We have moments in life like that.  Sometimes they involve family. Sometimes they involve us. Sometimes, they even involve church. But, there are these moments that we know that we that we know that God just did something. 

Today, we see this happen for a new generation in Scripture.  They were getting ready to cross the Jordan. They were going to see the waters part.  Now, remember these are the children of the ones that crossed the Red Sea. The Red Sea for them was either just a distance childhood memory, or it was something they learned about on the knees of their parents. 

But, this crossing, it was to be that moment for them. Today, in this day.  May we find those moments where God moves in our lives, and may we understand the power of His grace to move in our lives, each day.  

New Testament Lesson

We see Paul remind us today that at the end of the day, God is God, and we are not. And, because of that, there are times in life when we just have to trust. We have to trust He is right. We have to trust He knows what He is doing.  We have to trust He will work it all out. 

Now, that is hard; and it does require great faith. But, it is only in that trusting in the wisdom, mercy, and strength of God that we'll find His peace. 

Gospel Lesson

Today, we see the Lord remind us that as we do to the least of these, we do to Him. Remember today.  Each interaction, each act of service, each thing we do to the least of these, we do unto Him.  Today, may we serve our Lord by serving one another.
