Joshua, Chapter 4, Verse 14
That day the LORD exalted Joshua in the sight of all Israel, and so during his whole life they feared him as they had feared Moses.

Sometimes we are tempted to follow any leader who is popular. We forget God’s warning about following the proud and evil hearted, For lo, the day is coming, blazing like an oven, when all the proud and all evildoers will be stubble, and the day that is coming will set them on fire, leaving them neither root nor branch, says the LORD of hosts.(Mal 3: 19)

We may think that following the leadership of our bishops a waste of time. You have said, “It is useless to serve God; what do we gain by observing God’s requirements, and by going about as mourners-before the LORD of hosts? But we call the arrogant blessed; for evildoers not only prosper but even test God and escape.” (Mal 3:14-15)

God knows the heart of a man and if his heart be true God raises that man up as He did Joshua and Moses. God is not a God of the past and continues to this day in the action of rising a man up and He does so in our Priests and Bishops. Just like an architect that uses rocks and sticks to become temples or bridges God uses men to build his Kingdom. Strive therefore to be God’s man or women. Emulate Joshua in proclaiming, if it is displeasing to you to serve the LORD, choose today whom you will serve, the gods your ancestors served beyond the River or the gods of the Amorites in whose country you are dwelling. As for me and my household, we will serve the LORD.(Joshua 24:15).


We should have a holy fear of our Priest and Bishops. We should follow their guidance as we would a beloved father or brother. Like Joshua that led the armies of God today the Bishop of Phoenix asks us men to enter into the breach
