Join together in following my example, brothers and sisters, and just as you have us as a model, keep your eyes on those who live as we do. Philippians 3:17
Guess who is coming for dinner. In Exodus 18, Jethro the priest of Midian had heard everything God had done for his people the Israelites. Jethro was so excited to hear all that God had done. He says in verse 11, “Now I know that the Lord is greater than all the other gods, for he destroyed the Egyptians that had treated Israel so arrogantly.” He honored God and brought a burned sacrifice to praise God for all he had done.
Here are my five minutes of thoughts on the word “Join”
When I think of the word JOIN, I think of the bible study “Experiencing God.” The first concept in that book is that we join God in what He is already doing when we become available to God. In Exodus, Moses was in the desert and he saw God in the burning bush and he was invited to join God in MISSION EXODUS, Let my people go! Here we see that the news of what God was doing for the Israelites traveled back to the desert where Moses’ father-in-law lived.
What might God be doing that he is asking you to JOIN? Is there a volunteer position to work in the nursery at your church? Is there a request from God for you to read His word ? Is there a need in your friend’s life that you could fulfill? God is at work will you Join Him?
Blessed are the meek,
for they will inherit the earth.
Father God, I ask today that we recognize your direction in our lives that you remove any doubt that if you say go we go. Please remove the obstacles from my life and allow me to be the servant that is sharing what you are doing in my life. Let me be a model of you. Let me serve you and join you in the adventures that you have planned for me. Blessings.
