Faith & Family

Pastor Ben


Joshua 24:15 ESV

As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.

To mix faith and family together:

I. Rehearse what God did for you

(Joshua 4:1-7, Luke 8:39, Revelation 19:10)

Joshua 24:13 ESV   

I (the Lord) gave you a land on which you had not labored and cities that you had not built, and you dwell in them.

You eat the fruit of vineyards and olive orchards that you did not plant.

II. Restate your convictions

(Deuteronomy 6:4-9, 2 Corinthians 4:13, 2 Timothy 1:6-8)

Joshua 24:14a ESV

Now therefore fear the Lord and serve him in sincerity and in faithfulness.

III. Refocus your relationships

(Exodus 20:2-6, Luke 14:25-27, Philippians 2:1-4)

Joshua 24:14b ESV

Put away the gods that your fathers served beyond the River and in Egypt, and serve the Lord.

IV. Return to Jesus

(Joshua 1:8, Acts 2:38-39, Romans 10:8-10)

Joshua 24:15 ESV

And if it is evil in your eyes to serve the Lord, choose this day whom you will serve.... But as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.
