Making choices

Go and cry unto the gods which ye have chosen; let them deliver you in the time of your tribulation. Judges 10:14

This verse screamed out to me as I was reading. God is speaking to the Israelites. Each time He delivered them they would follow for a short time then leave and follow “strange” gods. The lure of the world was more appealing than obedience to God.

God will be saying this to us soon, not to America, but to Christians. How long can we straddle the fence? How long can we follow the world and the things of the world? What are some of the “strange” gods we are following? Most of us do not want to be “different” so we will wear clothing that is not very modest. We don’t want people to think we are “goody two shoes” so we will watch things that do not bring any glory to God. We jump right in and listen to songs or jokes that have very “colorful” language. God does not call it “colorful” but sin.

Make a choice – The true and living God or the god of this world.

And if it seem evil unto you to serve the LORD, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD. Joshua 24:15

Have a blessed day,
