"Now fear the Lord and serve him with all faithfulness. Throw away the gods your forefathers worshiped beyond the River and in Egypt, and serve the Lord. But if serving the Lord seems undesirable to you, then choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods your forefathers served beyond the River, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you are living. But as for me and my household, we will serve the Lord." Joshua 24:14-15
Joshua makes it clear as to what it means to be completely devoted to God.
- Complete devotion begins with the fear of the Lord.
- The way we faithfully serve our God will make it obvious that we are loyal to our King.
- The commitment we have will be shown by the way we rid our lives of anything that gets in the way of our relationship with God.
- Our devotion to our Lord will be evident because we will be intentionally choosing to serve God every day.
- Like Joshua, our complete devotion will be a bold statement to everyone about who our God is.
