In the final chapters of the Book of Joshua, we find him giving final directions from God to the Israelites. The Promised Land was divvied up and each of the 12 tribes got a parcel of the land and the Levites got cities all over the area. Two-and-a-half tribes (Ruben, Gad and the half-tribe of Manasseh) wanted the land to the east of the Jordan River — known as “Transjordan” — while the rest were west of the river or in “Cisjordan”. The two-and-a-half tribes built an altar near the river which offended the other tribes. What gives?
Also, here, Joshua gives his final challenge to the people — to choose today whom they will follow and serve — and he says a line that is quoted often. Which brings the question — whom will YOU follow and serve? Let’s dig in….
It’s time to GET RIGHT WITH GOD!
Jesus didn’t suffer torture and die so we could have religion! He died so He could have a Relationship with YOU!
If you want to reap all the benefits of salvation including the 1-way, non-stop ticket to Heaven then…
Believe. Repent. Be Baptized. Receive the Holy Spirit.
Pray this prayer humbly and wholeheartedly…
“Dear Lord Jesus, I know I am a sinner. I believe You died for my sins. Please forgive me. Right now, I turn from my sins and open the door of my heart and my life to you. I confess You as my personal Lord and Savior. I surrender my whole life to you and I will follow you for the rest of my life. Thank You, Jesus, for saving me. In Jesus’ name, Amen.”
