Today is Saturday, and I'm excited about Sunday! I enjoyed teaching at our Men's Prayer Breakfast this morning. What a wonderful time I have each Saturday at 8am with many of our men. Here is a thought for today:
WE WILL SERVE THE LORD- In Joshua 24:15, Joshua said: "but as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD." Joshua had decided that he would make a difference. He would serve God regardless of what others chose to do. Isn't that what we too should do? Of course it is! But notice this: When one man stands.... others stand along side of him. The people of Israel said in verse 21: "we will serve the LORD", and in verse 24: "The LORD our God will we serve, and his voice will we obey." Joshua took his stand for God and his stand caused others to take a stand for the LORD as well. Now notice this as well: In verse 31 it reads: "And Israel served the LORD all the days of Joshua, and all the days of the elders that overlived Joshua, and which had known all the works of the LORD, that he had done for Israel." Joshua took a stand... "as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD". Then the people stood up for the LORD as well: "we will serve the LORD". AND... they did so till Joshua died, and all who knew him died as well! What powerful influence for the cause of the LORD!! May we also take our stand when it seems we will stand alone... we can inspire others!!
Have a blessed day! Pastor Mike Mutchler
