“I will still serve the LORD.”

I will still serve the LORD.”

“But if you don’t want to serve the LORD, then choose today whom you will serve. Even if you choose the gods your ancestors served on the other side of the Euphrates or the gods of the Amorites in whose land you live, my family and I will still serve the LORD.” Joshua 24:15(GW)
Life is about making choices.
Daily what informs the choices you make?
It’s not about what others are doing.
It is about what You choose to do.
Joshua, in our text today, was aware of what was going on around him.
However, he personally chose to serve God.
Be conscious that in everything that you do
You are either serving God or the devil.
There is no neutral ground.
When you speak, or you are silent, who are you serving?
Whose desires are you doing?
“And I have come out of heaven not for my own desires, but for the satisfaction of my Father who sent me.” John 6:38 (TPT)
Jesus’s satisfaction is about the satisfaction of His Father.
Whose satisfaction are you really after?
It is not only about you.
Joshua said, my family and I will serve the Lord.
Who are you influencing your family to serve?
When Paul offered Jesus to the jailer:
It was for him and his family.
“They answered, “Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved—you and all your family.” Acts 16:31(TPT)
Earlier, Cornelius used his influence to gather his family to hear the Good news (Acts 10)
Again, who are you serving?
Today as I am opportune to be blessed with:
Another Glorious year to my purposeful life
I boldly say:
As for my family and me, we’ll worship GOD.
