We come to our last teaching from the book of Joshua today with a message that Pastor David Crespo has titled “The Choice Is Up To You”. We all need truth and we all need someone to speak the truth to us and we all need to choose who we’re going to serve. We must make a choice! “We must choose for ourselves this day whom we will serve!” “But as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.” Let’s listen in!
14 “Now therefore, fear the Lord, serve Him in sincerity and in truth, and put away the gods which your fathers served on the other side of [a]the River and in Egypt. Serve the Lord! 15 And if it seems evil to you to serve the Lord, choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of [b]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.”
16 So the people answered and said: “Far be it from us that we should forsake the Lord to serve other gods; 17 for the Lord our God is He who brought us and our fathers up out of the land of Egypt, from the house of bondage, who did those great signs in our sight, and preserved us in all the way that we went and among all the people through whom we passed.
