The reading this morning came from Joshua 24:1-15
Joshua took over from Moses as leader of the Israelites. This was the start of a big change from nomads to settled land owners. The book of Joshua also describes the battles that were fought to take over the land.
Joshua called on all the leaders of the tribes of Israel and called on them to serve the Lord, reminding them of all that He had done for them up to that day. You would think that the choice to follow God would be easy for them but the Old Testament tells us otherwise.
The Bible tells us of the power of making the right choice. Time is short, no one knows when their life will end. NOW is the time to choose! Tomorrow may be too late.
As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.
