On August 13, 2023, at Wildwood Community Church, I preached a message based on Joshua 4:19-24. This message was part of the “Following Jesus Together” sermon series. Below you will find questions related to the message for personal reflection or group discussion. You will also find the audio and video of the message to listen to/watch, download, or share.
- Read Joshua 4:19-24
- How have monuments and memorials been a help to you in sharing history and significant things with members of your own family?
- While the Israelites remembered what the Lord had done in their lives through stacking stones of remembrance, God has us remember His work through baptism, communion, and regular worship services. How has God used these elements to remind you of His work in your life?
- What are some ways you can activate more conversations with the next generation around you about who God is and what He has done?
- What are some ways the “Fame” of God is made known through the worship/celebration of His people? What are some impacts of the church in our community and around the world?
- Interact with this quote from Warren Wiersbe … “There is nothing wrong with memorials, provided they don’t become religious idols that turn our hearts from God, and provided they don’t so link us to the past that we fail to serve God in the present. Glorifying the past is a good way to petrify the present and rob the church of power. The next generations need reminders of what God has done in history, but these reminders must also strengthen their faith and draw them closer to the Lord.”
- What is one particular application you took away from this message?
