Building the Family of God
But the main point I really wanted to focus on might have been lost in it all. That point is: serving the Lord is your choice. That's it. Pretty simple really. The passage from Joshua says to me- you can follow the gods of this world, you can follow a trail of money, you can focus on yourself, but as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.
A powerful statement to be sure.
We are faced with this choice every day. Do I pursue the desires and wants that tempt me, or can I walk in the other direction...toward God, toward hope and toward glory.
Over these next few weeks I hope you join us for our conversations about building God's family. God's family is an amazingly diverse and loving crowd of people. Hopefully, you will make that choice to follow God, to serve the Lord and to make a change in your life.
