Who will you serve???

As we draw nearer to the elections, we get overwhelmed with political advertising and rhetoric that gets so hard to weed out the good and bad. The good thing as Christians is that we are not conformed to the images of this world, but are aliens in a strange land, right? Yes, we need to be mindful of all that is going on around us, but are also called to be separate.

As I was thinking on those things this morning, I was brought to the verse found in Joshua 24:15..."And if it seem evil unto you to serve the Lord, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord."

As human beings, we are given the freedom to choose who we will serve. Have you made a stand in your home? Or are you wishy-washy depending on if things are going well or not? Make a stand one way or the other...I am making a stand on the final part of this verse..."as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord"...POINT BLANK!!!

That requires a lot from us...does it mean everything is always easy? NO. Will there be struggles? as long as we live in an imperfect world...YES! But, we are "Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ"(Titus 2:13)...

Before I end today, we need to take another look at our verse for the week...John 3:30 "He must increase, but I must decrease." Goes right along with our passage, doesn't it? Those of you who haven't got it memorized have until Monday before it's time for our next working on it!

I pray that you have a great day and look forward to seeing many of you at our 2nd Annual Trunk or Treat tonight from 6-7:30 PM...

Please let me know if there is a special prayer request I can word on your behalf today...
