“So now, revere the Lord. Serve him honestly and faithfully. Put aside the gods that your ancestors served beyond the Euphrates and in Egypt and serve the Lord.” (Joshua 24:14)
The invitation to follow Jesus is an invitation to choose him as our master, as the one who always knows what is best for us, and who trains and equips us to follow all his commands obediently. Christ is calling you to follow him, serve him, and be transformed by him. He is calling you to a new kind of life! God will take your talents, abilities, passions, and unique personality and use them for the good.
Turn your life over to Jesus. Let him guide you. Leave behind old gods, and embrace him as Lord.
Almighty God, help me to choose to serve you this day, rather than false idols. Amen.
