Message of the Day: Sincere Service of God Comes From The Willingness Of The Heart.
“But as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.” (Joshua 24:15, NKJV)
Here, Joshua publicly makes his commitment, hoping to elicit the same from Israel.
The Israelites demonstrated a tendency towards idolatry, either the idolatry of Abraham’s ancestors, of the Egyptians, or of the Canaanites. Therefore, they needed to make a firm decision whether they were going to serve these gods or the One True God. As for Joshua and his family, their choice was already done, they will serve God, he is their portion.
A sincere service of God can only come from a free and willing devotion of the heart. We should make a choice for God himself will not force us. We must serve him with all of our heart.
