9/20/13 Daily Devotion

Joshua 24:14-15 “Now fear the Lord and serve him with all faithfulness. Throw away the gods your ancestors worshiped beyond the Euphrates River and in Egypt, and serve the Lord. [15] But if serving the Lord seems undesirable to you, then choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods your ancestors served beyond the Euphrates, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you are living. But as for me and my household, we will serve the Lord.”

These words of Joshua are very powerful, “But if serving the Lord seems undesirable to you, then choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve.” Joshua adamantly states that we have a choice. We can choose to serve God or choose to live for ourselves. While we might suggest one choice has better eternal ramifications, it still remains the personal choice of each individual person, to choose to live for God or simply refuse. Refusal is detrimental, but it is our right. The big issue centers around this choice as Christians. Too many Christians today have professed this faith in God but still choose not to powerfully live out this faith, and that is a major detriment to the witness of the church as well as our own personal witness. Read those words of Joshua again; read them every day, and make your choice.

Prayer Starter:

Lord, help me choose to live powerfully for You every day.
