Today's Word for Pastors...
The LORD will guide you always; he will satisfy your needs in a sun-scorched land and will strengthen your frame. You will be like a well-watered garden, like a spring whose waters never fail.
Today's Preaching Insight...
Many Americans and presidents have made their way to the center of Arlington Cemetery. There stands a monument that is beloved by all Americans. It is the Tomb of the Unknown Solider. Guarded seven days a week, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year by the Old Guard of the United States Army, it has engraved on it these words:
"Here Rests in Honored Glory an American Soldier Known but to God."
It's hard to view that sight and not be moved.I want to look at a place in God's Word that has been visited by many believers through time. Here we will honor whom God has honored and memorialized in His Word. Some of these people are known only to God, but He has erected a monument in His Word to the story of His grace in their lives that we, too, may view that sight and be moved, strengthened and encouraged.
That is my prayer as we study these passages from Joshua 2 and Hebrews 11:30-12:2, in the inerrant and the infallible Word of the living God.

A remorseful man, wanting to reassure his skeptical wife, said: "I'm going to make a 360-degree turn."
David Jeremiah writes: "That's the kind of change a lot of people make. A 360-degree turn is no change at all. What we need is a 180-degree change, a reverse direction, a U-Turn.
"In driving, U-turns are handy when we realize we're going in the wrong way. The same is true in life. The Lord tells us to turn from our wicked ways and to turn toward Him in confession and true repentance. This involves a change of heart, a change of mind and a change of direction.
"What direction are you traveling right now? Don't keep barreling the wrong way. Turn 180 degrees to Christ and start living for Him today."
