“But if serving the LORD seems undesirable to you, then choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods your forefathers served beyond the River, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you are living. But as for me and my household, we will serve the LORD.”-Joshua 24:15 (NIV)
I wonder how some people can dare to neglect their creator and choose instead to serve mere mortal or even dummy gods.
Indeed, God gives us all the choose to live our lives the way we want, in spite of this, we must not forget that we all are going to account for the way we live no matter how long this takes.
We are God’s creation and He purposely made us in His own image to His own glory. He would have created us in another form far from Him but because he wants us to be part of Him, God delighted so much in us that He made us just as he is.
So why can’t we then give Him the glory for having such privilege to be like God? Why can’t we praise Him, honour Him and serve Him with all our entire being? Of what use are our lives if we decide to reject God and go on serving mere mortal or dummy gods who are of no value to us?
It is your choice as Christian to decide if you will serve God or not But I want to make it clear to you that you secure your life, your destinies and those of your generations to come if you choose to serve God instead.
God is not difficult to understand if you try to know Him. He is love, He is kind, loving, patient, full of humility and awesomeness? It is your choice, I repeat to decide if you will serve Him or not.
I can’t live my life outside of God’s divine protection because i choose to serve Him. My family and I choose to serve God and no one else. We love God and we will do whatever it takes to follow Him.
What Joshua was referring to still applies today and it will be forever until the return of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Please I implore you, choose to serve God, follow Him with all your heart for there are abundant blessings, grace and love in staying and spending your entire life with God.
By the way, tell me, if you refuse to serve God, who then are you going to serve?
