On Your Mark

Andy Stanley kicked off the Catalyst Conference with a great talk on Joshua.

His two key verses were Joshua 23:8 and Joshua 5:13-14.

He talked about how Joshua's life hinged on the event before the battle of Jericho when he meets the Angel of the Lord (5:13-14). Joshua is out surveying the city before the attack and meets the angel with his sword drawn. Joshua asks a question that most of us would ask: "Are you for us, or against us?"

The angel has a great answer: "No."

Here are some blurbs from Andy's talk about this:
  • "God is not coming to be a part of our story, He is asking us to be a part of His!"
  • "Wrap your identity around who you are for, not who is for you."
  • "Whose side are you on, not whose on your side."
  • Charles Stanley - "God takes full responsibility for a life wholly devoted to Him."
  • Charles Stanley - "My responsibility is to be obedient to God and to trust Him with the consequences."
  • "God has designed, created, gifted and positioned you!"
  • "You have no idea what God wants to accomplish through you."
  • "Our mark isn't worth our life"
  • "Living to make my mark is to small a thing to give my life for."
Dream Big...Pray Bigger!
