This week we continued looking at making choices – this time the big choice! The choice that determines the whole direction of our lives. The choice to follow God! We need to make a positive purposeful choice not lead a directionless, meandering life following the course of least resistance.
Joshua 24:14–24 (NIV) says: “Now fear the Lord and serve him with all faithfulness. Throw away the gods your forefathers worshiped beyond the River and in Egypt, and serve the Lord. But if serving the Lord seems undesirable to you, then choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods your forefathers served beyond the River, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you are living. But as for me and my household, we will serve the Lord.”
We must choose:
1. The spiritual rather than the worldly.
2. Eternal not temporary.
3. God’s will not man’s will
4. Truth not the easy convenient path.
We need to live in the positive choice making world! Asking and making decisions based on the ultimate purpose!
Listen along to be encouraged!
