“And if it seem evil to you to serve the Lord, choose you this day whom you will serve, whether gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.”Joshua 24:15
There is an urgency in this time to choose where you stand. Not with a group or a train of thought but from a spiritual standpoint. Whom do you serve?
What do you stand for? What do you believe in? Where do you draw the line?
These are questions that we all must answer. Without saying a word, we show it by our actions. Certainly, our actions speak louder than anything we can ever say.
However, to serve God, we can’t let our actions speak for us alone. We must confess that Jesus is our Lord and Savior. We must confess and repent of our sins. We must share our testimony and tell others about Christ, so they may be saved.
Finally, to serve God, we must have relationship with Jesus. We must follow and listen to Jesus, so that our deeds are guided by the Holy Spirit and not our personal motives. This requires allowing the power of God to, daily, transform us (Romans 12:2). Without this transformation, we won’t serve God. Instead, we will always rebel against God, reject fellowship with Jesus, and only serve ourselves (Romans 16:18).
