Joshua 10:1-43; Isaiah 7:1-8:4; Luke 23:47-24:12

I go to prepare a place for you. John 14:2

In Great Britain, one comes across stone walls, which have stood for hundreds of years. If you look closely at them you will see that each stone, no matter how small, has a place. Each one, no matter its size, has been important to the integrity of the whole. Even so are we. Peter says that believers as “lively stones, are built up a spiritual house” (1 Peter 2:5). Paul adds that we are “built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner stone” (Eph. 2:20). Each one of God’s peoples is integral to the whole. May we fulfill our role with joy and faithfulness. —Ken Gunnell

How firm a foundation, ye saints of the Lord,
Is laid for your faith in His excellent Word! —G. Keith
