Saturday, March 29, 2014 – Hebrews 11:22; Genesis 50:22-26

“The Israelites carried this casket for more than forty years. There was more faith in the bones of Joseph than in the feet of the Israelites. The Israelites carried the coffin through the Jordan River, all the way to Shechem (Joshua 24:32). Even Joseph entered Canaan when Moses was not permitted to do so. Moses would look at the Promised Land but Joseph would possess it even in his death.¬†Joseph knew that one day there was going to be a great resurrection, and he did not want to miss the greatest day of the future. He lived his life in the sunrise of eternity – not at the sunset of time.”John Pethtel
