“I gave you a land on which you had not labored, and cities which you had not built, and you have lived in them; you are eating of vineyards and olive groves which you did not plant” (Joshua 24:13).

From Abraham to the present occupation of Canaan, for thirteen verses Joshua has given the Hebrews a summary overview of God’s abiding presence and faithful provision. As the beneficiaries of God’s grace it seems reasonable to expect that their response would be one of loyalty and devotion. Such is the nature of faith; it need not be blind nor unreasonable. Granted, you may never have all the information you would like before making a decision regarding a commitment of faith, but even then it wouldn’t be a decision; it would be a foregone conclusion. Have you decided in regard to the life of faith? Part of the grace of being a chosen people is that it necessitates our being a choosing people. Choose today whom you will serve.
