… choose today whom you will serve …
— Joshua 24:15
One of the great problems in the Church today is that people just can’t make up their minds. One minute they determine they are going to serve God and Christ. The next minute they are afraid they are going to miss out on some goodies of this world. They don’t want to become too religious, and so they have just enough religion to make themselves miserable, but certainly not enough to get them into heaven. However, their indecisiveness will one day be solved for them at the final Judgment, when heart and mind and soul and body will be cast into hell. No more indecision then.
The present problem with indecision is that it causes people to do nothing. That is the great problem of the Church. That was the great problem of Joshua’s day. That is why so little progress is made in the kingdom—why it is so difficult to get people to volunteer to serve.
Let us decide to follow the Lord wholeheartedly and to serve Him all the days of our lives.
Question to ponder:
Can you truly say, “As for me and my house we will serve the Lord”?
