Thought From The Word 7/18/19

Joshua 24:15

“And if it seem evil unto you to serve the Lord, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.”

This verse is quoted quite often “…but as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.” Joshua is talking to the children of Israel of whom he was their leader. H is telling them to serve God in sincerity and truth. Get rid of any idols or anything that comes between them and God.   He was telling them make a decision today what you are going to do – are you going to serve God or idols? Make up your mind today but Joshua said “Whatever you decide I want you to know – as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.” No one can make that choice for you. You and only you can make that choice. Whom are you serving God or the devil? Listen to Joshua’s advice and choose God today.

Talk is cheap – it is easy to say “I’ll choose Christ”– it is harder to live the Christian life
