Give Thanks

Arrange ahead of time for a person to interrupt you as you begin welcoming the church people. Have the adult say to you, “Hey. I hate to interrupt, but I left my wallet at home and I really wanted a cup of coffee this morning. Can you give me a dollar?” Search your pockets and pull out a dollar. Hold it up and the adult will grab it–without saying thank you–and walk away. Stare at him as he walks away.)

Ask: I’m happy to give a dollar to my friend, but did anyone notice anything when he took my money? He did not say thank you. Say: I wonder why he didn’t say thank you. It’s sort of like he thinks he deserved that dollar. But, that was my dollar. I gave it to him to be nice. He didn’t deserve it. Or maybe he just doesn’t want to admit he needed my help. Either way, not saying thank you is really a sign of pride.

The Bride

Ephesians 5:25–27 (ESV)… Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her, that he might sanctify her, having cleansed her by the washing of water with the word, so that he might present the church to himself in splendor, without spot or wrinkle or any such

The Bible mentions that the Church is “The Bride”. Some theologians say that “The Bride” mentioned repeatedly in the New Testament is not the Church but it seams pretty obvious to me that both Jesus, Paul, John and the apostles used this image to define the covenant relationship between Jesus and the Church.
Revelation 19:7–9 (ESV) Let us rejoice and exult and give him the glory, for the marriage of the Lamb has come, and his Bride has made herself ready; it was granted her to clothe herself with fine linen, bright and pure”—for the fine linen is the righteous deeds of the saints.

Crossing Over: The Conquest

Joshua 3 (ESV) 14 So when the people set out from their tents to pass over the Jordan with the priests bearing the ark of the covenant before the people, 15 and as soon as those bearing the ark had come as far as the Jordan, and the feet of the priests bearing the ark were dipped in the brink of the water (now the Jordan overflows all its banks throughout the time of harvest), 16 the waters coming down from above stood and rose up in a heap very far away, at Adam, the city that is beside Zarethan, and those flowing down toward the Sea of the Arabah, the Salt Sea, were completely cut off. And the people passed over opposite Jericho. 17 Now the priests bearing the ark of the covenant of the Lord stood firmly on dry ground in the midst of the Jordan, and all Israel was passing over on dry ground until all the nation finished passing over the Jordan.

The priests stood firmly on dry ground in the midst of the Jordan so all Israel passed them by. As the people arrived to the other side they continued carrying the Ark of the Covenant to the other side of the mighty river. They had the privilege of being both the first to cross and the last ones to arrive.

Crossing Over

In Jewish tradition, there was a literal rock that followed Israel in their wanderings in the wilderness. In the Tosephta, the tradition is related as follows:"It was likewise with the well that was with the children of Israel in the wilderness, it [the well] was like a rock that was full of holes like a sieve from which water trickled and arose as from the opening of a flask. It [the rock-well] ascended with them to the top of the hills and descended with them into the valleys; wherever Israel tarried there it tarried over against the entrance to the tabernacle”

Joshua Led the people of Israel into the promised land after more than 40 years of wandering in the wilderness. They were carrying the Ark od the Covenant wish represents the very Presence of God. The Ark was ahead of them showing that God is leading the way into a new direction and God tells them specific instructions about this crossing.
