Remembering God's Greatness that all the peoples of the earth may know that the hand of the LORD is mighty, that you may fear the LORD your God forever.
Joshua 4:24

At the beginning at the end of Joshua 4 there is an account of the building of a simple stone monument on the banks of the Jordan River. Composed of 12 simple stones, it was meant to provoke a question from future generations: "What do these stones mean?" And the answer provided an opportunity to instruct that generation on the greatness of God Who delivered Israel. It also served as a means to witness the the entire nation, and even the world of what God does.

I have that chance to invest my life in these kinds of memorials. Not stones, but lives. Every life that I see transformed by the grace of Christ is just such a standing witness to the greatness of God. I remember God's greatness with each growth and victory, each answered prayer, each way in which we were there with each other in struggles and difficulties. It is a beautiful monument and inspiration.

- Prepare your minds for action.
1 Peter 1:13
