Joshua 24:15

We choose what is important to us.

Joshua 24:15
“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.”

We have choices. We can serve other god’s or we can serve God. ” If serving the Lord seems undesirable to you” is a great lead in to a why question. Why do we find it undesirable to serve the Lord?

Serving the God of love can only be done out of love, the kind of self-sacrificial love Christ showed for us. Unfortunately, that is the answer to the why question. As much as that says about us, it says a whole lot about God’s love for us and patience with us that we still have this opportunity to know Him.

“But for me and my household, we will serve the Lord.” That is a bold proclamation, a commitment to love, to service, to training, to God. Lord, we will serve you, we will do what you ask us to do with a grateful heart.

We have always had a choice and still do.
