Theme: No Other Gods
Passage: Deuteronomy 6:13-19
The freedom we have in Christ is not a license to act contrary to the commandments of God; but to fear him and keep his statutes. Going against God is at our own risk. It attracts the anger of God and destruction to us. We have been called to do what is right at all-times, not sometimes. No matter the circumstances, don’t yield to pressure from friends, family, colleagues, school, society etc and go against God it is dangerous. 1Peter 1:16.
Joshua said to the people “Now you have heard the Lord’s word. So you must respect the Lord and sincerely serve him, throw away the false gods your ancestors worshipped……. Now you must serve only the Lord” Joshua 24:14. We are to serve God with sincerity of heart, because Jesus shed his blood that we might have life; set us free from sin; delivers us from hell; gives us eternal life; sends us his Spirit to comfort and give us peace, Eph 2:12-13.
God wants your complete and total commitment to him. Serve God with all your heart, your soul, your strength in your public and private lives, in your business and working places, in your present situation and future. When God is your priority, all will be well with you; you have life eternal and receive the crown of righteousness.
MEMORY VERSE: Deuteronomy 6:15 “For the Lord your God is a jealous God among you, lest the anger of the Lord your God be aroused against you and destroy you from the face of the earth.”
HYMN: MHB 590 – FORTH in Thy name, O Lord I go.
