We will follow the Lord …

Decide today to lead your family in the way of the Lord.

Decide today to lead your family in the way of the Lord.

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.

Joshua had a choice. He could follow the ways of those around him or he could follow God’s ways.

We have that same choice every day. When we make decisions, when we raise our children, when we start our day — we have a choice.

The choice you makes determines the direction your life takes. With each decision there are consequences — good and bad. But the choice is yours.

There are the gods of this world — materialism, looking out for yourself only, objective morality — and they will all lead to sad ends.

There is also the God of the universe. His way includes life everlasting, sanctification, justification, salvation, and more. But it does have requirements. We tend to balk at something like that having requirements — but all of life has requirements. Your job has requirements; your marriage has requirements; your financial life has requirements; your family has requirements; your car has requirements; your LIFE has requirements.

The question you must ask is what requirements will you fulfill? That all depends on which direction you choose.

Joshua said that as far as he was concerned, he and his house would follow the Lord. Will you make the same choice today?
