A Thought for Today: “Step Into the Water”
Please read the following verses
 
Joshua 3:9-17
9 Joshua said to the Israelites, “Come here and listen to the words of the Lord your God.
10 This is how you will know that the living God is among you and that he will certainly drive out before you the Canaanites, Hittites, Hivites, Perizzites, Girgashites, Amorites and Jebusites.
 
11 See, the ark of the covenant of the Lord of all the earth will go into the Jordan ahead of you.
12 Now then, choose twelve men from the tribes of Israel, one from each tribe.
13 And as soon as the priests who carry the ark of the Lord—the Lord of all the earth—set foot in the Jordan, its waters flowing downstream will be cut off and stand up in a heap.”
 
14 So when the people broke camp to cross the Jordan, the priests carrying the ark of the covenant went ahead of them.
 
15 Now the Jordan is at flood stage all during harvest. Yet as soon as the priests who carried the ark reached the Jordan and their feet touched the water’s edge,
16 the water from upstream stopped flowing. It piled up in a heap a great distance away, at a town called Adam in the vicinity of Zarethan, while the water flowing down to the Sea of the Arabah (that is, the Dead Sea) was completely cut off. So the people crossed over opposite Jericho.
 
17 The priests who carried the ark of the covenant of the Lord stopped in the middle of the Jordan and stood on dry ground, while all Israel passed by until the whole nation had completed the crossing on dry ground.
 
When Israel came to the Red Sea, the Lord parted the waters, dried out the path though the sea, and then the people passed through the walled up waters.
 
At the Jordan River, the floodwaters do not stop until the priests carrying the Ark of the Covenant step into the waters.
 
Today, the Thought of the Day comes from a gospel song by the same name.
 
If you know this song, please sing along.
If you do not, find it on YouTube.
It is a great song to sing.
 
“Step Into the Water”
Step into the water
Wade out a little bit deeper
Wet your feet in the water of his love
Ohh, Step into the water (children)
Wade out a little bit deeper
Come join angels singin’
Praises to the Lamb of God
 
It’s time we the people
Stand up for what is right
It’s time we squared our shoulders back
And raised our swords to fight
For the Bible is our weapon
And the spirit is my shield
The church needs more of its members to be workers in the field
 
Step into the water
Wade out a little bit deeper. (A little deeper)
Wet your feet in the water of his love
Ohh, Step into the water (children)
Wade out a little bit deeper
Come join angels singin’
Praises to the Lamb of God
To the Lamb of God
 
There is victory for the Christian
Who walks the narrow way
There has been a prize appointed
For the soul who does not stray
Oh I want to live for Jesus
Be all that I should be
So that I can rest with him forever
Live eternally
 
Step into the water
Wade out a little bit deeper
Wet your feet in the water of his love
Step into the water (children)
Wade out a little bit deeper
Come join angels singin’
Praises to the Lamb of God
To the Lamb of God
 
Step into the water
Wade out a little bit deeper
Wet your feet in the water of his love
Step into the water (children)
Wade out a little bit deeper
Come join angels singin’
Praises to the Lamb of God
 
Step into the water
Wade out a little bit deeper
Wet your feet in the water of his love
Ohh, Step into the water (children)
Wade out a little bit deeper
Come join angels singin’
Praises to the Lamb of God
 
Come on, Step into the water
Wade out a little bit deeper
Wet your feet in the water of his love
Ohh, Step into the water (children)
Wade out a little bit deeper
Come join angels singin’
Praises to the Lamb of God
