I have a little quiz for you. Who said the following?
“But as for me and my household, we will serve the Lord.”
Do you know? I will tell you at the end, if you do not.
Some interesting things come from this famous chapter in the Bible.
1) A choice has to be made. The same choice we all have to make.
2) In making the correct choice, other things which are contrary to that choice have to be put away and moved away from.
This well-known chapter is not the only place in the Bible that talks about the decisions that must be made in following God.
Peter says it this way, “For you have spent enough time in the past doing what pagans choose to do– living in debauchery, lust, drunkenness, orgies, carousing and detestable idolatry.”
(1 Peter 4:3 NIV)
Read for yourself Paul’s statement in Ephesians 4:22-24.
The quote above comes from Joshua 24:15, and the one making the statement is Joshua.
Faithfully following the Lord requires making some choices.
