Joshua 24:15

Over the weekend, was sharing to the worship team about Joshua.

(Scripture reference : Joshua 23-24)

God's people have traveled so far over the years to the Promise Land. Along the way, we read of their detours and obstacles. Now at the brink of reaching the Promise Land, Joshua challenged the people of God in few areas where I just want to point out..

1) Courage - Joshua 24:8-10
So many nations tries to bully people of God, but God was with them in their battle. God was indeed with them, so there's no need to be afraid.

2) Calling - Joshua 23:6-8
It's easy to be sway away from the right path by the temptations of the world. Here, God reminded the people (and us) not to be easily affected and swayed by them.

3) Commitment - Joshua 23:14-15
Remember our relationship and walk with the Lord

the key part of the sharing I wanted to point out is in Joshua 24:15 -- "But as for me and my household, we will serve the Lord"

It's easy to say I follow God and then walk another path. What i love about Joshua's rally cry is remind the people about who they are serving and worshiping. 

At the same time, we are part of a family of God that give our best to Him in everything, every area of our lives. So.. why not be part of an awesome family? :)

Alrighty.. that verse keep reminding me of this song.. so enjoy...
