“But you have forsaken me and served other gods, so I will no longer save you. Go and cry out to the gods you have chosen. Let them save you when you are in trouble.” But the Israelites said to the Lord, “We have sinned. Do with us whatever you think best, but please rescue us now.” Then they got rid of the foreign gods among them and served the Lord. And he could bear Israel’s misery no longer.”
- We must realize that our time, energy, and faith, will return void without God.
- Have you allowed your job, money, status, friends, family, hobbies, adultery, pornography, homosexuality, greed, possessions, etc., to take a prominent position in your life?
- How long do you expect God to let your other desires take precedence over Him?
- Are you investing in Christ, who is the only one who can sustain you?
Joshua 24:15 “But if serving the Lord seems undesirable to you, then choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods your ancestors served beyond the Euphrates, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you are living. But as for me and my household, we will serve the Lord.”
