"And if it is evil in your eyes to serve the LORD, choose this day whom you will serve, whether the gods your fathers served in the region beyond the River, or the gods of the Amorites in whose land you dwell. But as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD….Joshua 24:15.
CONSIDER THIS: Yogi Berra said when “you come to a fork in the road, take it”. If you’re looking for a philosophy in life, this is not it….and neither, anything from the “spiritual mind” of men. Go to God, because Doctrine is one of those things in life, with which we do not mess or take lightly. The choice today is before us on the road of Life. We can choose to fool ourselves and walk with the perishing world in all its sin, perversion, corruption and evil, while thinking we are serving God, thinking He is okay with that….or we can simply CHOOSE righteousness, holiness, purity and consecrate ourselves to Him, as Joshua did. You have to make that choice. There is NO middle ground.
ACTION: Each of us are not only supposed to do this but it is literally wise, in so many ways, to wake up, daily, in the Faith and reaffirm our devotion to the Lord. One way to do this is to resolve to read all three (3) EXTREMELY short books of 1, 2 and 3 John (close to the final book of the Bible – Revelation). This reading of 1, 2 and 3rd John should be done over the period of the next week, with thoughts being recorded in margins of bibles, or prayer journals.
Oh most gracious God and Father in Heaven, thank You for all You have done and the freedom of Will to choose to be in Your Family throughout eternity. Most of all, we thank You for choosing US as Your children to be in the Family of God, through Jesus Christ, the Author and Perfecter of our Faith. Help us now and from here on out, to be careful in all aspects of our daily life choices, to honor You in every way and to seek You in Word, Spirit and Truth, in Jesus’ Name amen.
