As for me and my house, WE WILL SERVE THE LORD!

"But if you refuse to serve the LORD, then choose today whom you will serve. Would you prefer the gods your ancestors served beyond the Euphrates? Or will it be the gods of the Amorites in whose land you now live? But as for me and my family, we will serve the LORD."--Joshua 24:15

Choices. They are everywhere. What shall I have to eat? Which movie to watch? Where to go on vacation? What career path to follow? Should I leave my husband/wife? Can I get by with cheating on taxes this year? As John Waller expresses in the video below, "Like sheep, we have all gone astray, we must choose this day whom we would serve."

Some choices have greater impact on our lives than others. And yet, I know that I can have confidence in my choices if at the crux of my being, I have chosen the Lord Jesus as my Savior. For that is the MOST important choice I have in my life. All other choices will flow out of that one decision that I have made...to put Christ as the center of my life, at the center of my choices.

Take a few moments today to envelop the words of this song into your heart. Choose. Today.
