Choose it or Lose It

Joshua 24:15"If it is disagreeable in your sight to serve the LORD, choose for yourselves today whom you will serve: whether the gods which your fathers served which were beyond the River, or the gods of the Amorites in whose land you are living; but as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD."
Each Sunday when I preach we offer what we call an invitation at the end of the service to Choose to accept Christ or not. In 30 years of ministry I have seen many people make that choice and I suppose many left and chose not to accept Christ, at least not on that day. The good news is that with each new day comes a new opportunity to Choose Christ, or at least that is what the Bible says. However one day that opportunity will be lost forever. So while you have the chance why not make that choice. Paraphrasing Joshua....Choose it or Lose it!

  1. I assume this is from Joshua? Which chapter is it from. Also it is so hard to wait for loved ones to accept Christ after you have shared His Love with them over and over. You just have to remember it is Christ whom they are rejecting and all you can do from there is pray and let God get their attention.
