Whom then shall we serve?

Life is full of choices & we make choices every day that impact both our present & our future.
Every choice matters & every choice counts as they all make a difference.
This is true in both our physical & spiritual lives which are intimately connected.
In this life we must choose who will we serve & worship? The One True God or foreign gods & idols!!
As we saw yesterday there are things we must leave behind & cast aside to faithfully serve the Lord!!
Consideration of the foreign gods & idols that plague us will be our focus for today.


“Now therefore, fear the Lord, serve Him in sincerity and in truth, and put away the gods which your fathers served on the other side of the River and in Egypt. Serve the Lord! And if it seems evil to you to serve the Lord, choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the River, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you dwell. But as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.” So the people answered and said: “Far be it from us that we should forsake the Lord to serve other gods; Joshua 24:14-16 NKJV


Joshua challenges the people of Israel to make a choice about who they will serve & worship.
This is to be an informed intentional choice made in all truth & sincerity. Humbly & honesty.
They can serve the Lord or they can serve the gods of their ancestors or the gods of the Amorites.
They must make a decision & live their lives in full alignment with that decision. SELAH
Joshua knows where he stands & who he will serve but Israel must make the decision too.

The gods of their ancestors represent the stumbling blocks & failures of the past.
We all have things that have tripped us up & dragged us down in our past, leading to us falling away from God.
The good news for believers is that ‘In Christ’ your past is left behind & does not define you or your future. SELAH
Through salvation ‘In Christ’ the old has gone & the new has come as we live for God. Hallelujah!!
The gods of the Amorites are the current foreign gods & idols that are a present snare & temptation unto the Israelites.
We today must confront philosophical ideologies & the doctrine of demons in so many differing areas – e.g. gender, sexuality, race, ethics.
False gods & idols (idolatry) are all around us & we must stand strong & keep choosing the Lord & His ways.
We dwell in the land (world) they influence (pollute & corrupt) but we must keep our devotion pure unto the Lord. SELAH
Living in God’s world, God’s way & casting aside every false god & idol.

We are called to faithfulness unto the Lord & we must stand strong like Joshua.
We cannot rely upon the choices of others, instead we must make our own decision & stand by it. SELAH
The people of Israel in Joshua’s day were not prepared to forsake the Lord & that must be our choice too.
Israel struggled to wholeheartedly follow the Lord & Joshua warned them about this (Joshua 24:19-28).
Christians have the help & strength of the indwelling Spirit to equip, empower, lead & guide them.
Where Israel faltered & failed, we are wonderfully resourced to keep serving & worshipping the Lord.
TODAY keep choosing truth, keep choosing life, keep choosing freedom, choose Christ & keep choosing Him. Hallelujah!!

For Reflection

  • How confident & strong am I about taking a stand for the Lord & His truth & ways?
  • What have been the hardest snares & temptations I have had to face & overcome?
  • Meditate upon how we are called to forsake & abandon the gods & idolatry of our past & the gods & idols of our age.

A song related to this theme:


Prayer

Heavenly Father,
Thank you that You are the One True God,
That you call me to serve & worship You in all sincerity & truth.
Jesus, like You did, teach me to stand strong for the Lord,
To walk in His love, light & life & to follow his word, will & ways.
Holy Spirit thank you for Your constant presence in my life, equipping & empowering me to live for & love the Lord,
Give me wisdom & discernment to reject & cast aside every influence from the false gods & idolatry of this age.
This I ask in the mighty Name of Jesus.
Amen

Whom then shall we serve?

Every day we must make important choices that shape us & determine both our present & our future.
Our attention & affection is constantly being sought after by a myriad of different people & things.
The key question In the midst of all this is who will we serve & worship?
Daily we must choose to serve the Lord. To choose the Lord means there are things we must leave behind & cast aside!!
The importance of this will be our focus for today.


“Now therefore, fear the Lord, serve Him in sincerity and in truth, and put away the gods which your fathers served on the other side of the River and in Egypt. Serve the Lord! And if it seems evil to you to serve the Lord, choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the River, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you dwell. But as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.” So the people answered and said: “Far be it from us that we should forsake the Lord to serve other gods; Joshua 24:14-16 NKJV


Joshua encourages & challenges the people of Israel to make a choice – will they worship & serve any god or the One True God.
Joshua had to command the Israelites to “throw away the gods” of their ancestors. Foreign gods & idols have to go!!
The Israelites were still worshiping idols despite experiencing many of the Lord’s great miracles and victories.
Joshua commanded the people to give undivided loyalty to the Lord as the only way to experience His presence and blessing in the future.
How easily they, & ourselves too if we are not careful, forget the great love, grace & goodness of the Lord. SELAH
Humanity’s repeated capacity to forget the benefits & blessings of the Lord is hard to fathom!!

Joshua was strongly exhorting the people to put away (throw off & cast aside) any form of idiolatry.
The first commandment was that they would have no other gods before the Lord (Exodus 20:3).
Joshua was desiring that Israel made their choice & commitment crystal clear. An informed & intentional choice – sincerity & truth.
He wanted them to be honest with themselves so that they could align & incline their hearts unto God alone (Joshua 24:23).
The Lord desires our undivided hearts, steadfast loyalty, faithful service & unwavering worship & devotion. SELAH

We too must be intentional & make those informed choices that will better enable us to serve the Lord.
We are to put off the old man (fleshly humanity) to serve the Lord (Ephesians 4:22; Colossians 3:9).
Our old ways of thinking & previous behaviour (attitudes & actions) need to be renewed (Romans 12:1-2).
Our acceptable worship (how we live our lives) is to offer our bodies daily as living sacrifices unto the Lord!!
Worship & serve the Lord & Him alone. Be ruthless in throwing off & casting aside anything that gets in the way. SELAH
Cling tightly to the Lord & be fully & faithfully committed to Him, His cause & His Church.
TODAY choose life, choose freedom, choose Christ. Hallelujah!!

For Reflection

  • In what ways does my heart get tugged or tempted in different directions other than the Lord?
  • What have I had to put away & cast aside to become more devoted to the Lord?
  • Meditate upon how we are called to be wholly devoted unto the Lord.

A song related to this theme:


Prayer

Heavenly Father,
Thank you that You held nothing back in securing my salvation,
Help & strengthen me to do the same as I serve & worship You alone.
Jesus, teach me to surrender fully to the Father’s will as You did,
Keep me close to & clinging to You, Your word, & Your ways.
Holy Spirit give me strength to cast off & leave behind anything that will hinder me from following the Lord,
Quicken my heart to stay fully focussed on Christ & faithful to Him.
This I ask in the mighty Name of Jesus.
Amen

We live in a fast-paced, ever-changing world where daily we are bombarded with information & a myriad of differing distractions.
In the midst of all this we must make important choices that shape who we are & what our future will look like.
Each of us can learn from Joshua’s godly example as he encouraged the Israelites to choose to stand strong & serve the Lord.
Daily – THIS DAY – we must choose to serve the Lord. This will be our focus for today.

We must exercise the power of choice every day. Daily we must choose who we will serve.
Will we serve the true God? Will we serve foreign gods? Will we serve ourselves or others?
This was the choice facing the people of Israel in Joshua’s day & it is the choice we all face in our day.
There are things we can learn from Joshua (who is a type of Christ) as he choose to stand strong & serve the Lord.
This TFD series will investigate how Joshua choose, & encouraged others, to serve the Lord.

We have examined three out of four things that happened to Saul when he became king of Israel (1 Samuel 10).
The very day Saul was anointed, he changed into a new person, his heart was transformed & God was with him from that point on.
What happened to Saul that day are the blessings & benefits of the new life that we receive ‘In Christ’.
We have seen how Christians are anointed & how with a new heart & spirit they become new creations through the saving power of Christ.
The wonderful news that God is ever with us, our constant comfort & companion, will be our focus for today.
