God Invites Me to Follow Him

When I say the words Silly Bands what comes to mind? For me it was running around trying to find these crazy shaped bands that went on the wrist. Of course every store was sold out of them at the time and they were no where to be found. They were flying off the shelf like hotcakes. My child just had to have them because everyone else did. It was the latest greatest thing. He was following a trend. Now where ever I go it seems like every store and gas station has them. Are they still as popular as they once were?

Raise your hand if you have ever followed the latest greatest tend? Maybe for you it was bell-bottoms or leg warmers or the denim jean jacket. Maybe a cool hairstyle? We all make decisions about what we will or will not follow.

This week we will learn that God provided us with salvation and

forgiveness through His Son Jesus. God wants us to follow Him through Jesus. Our bible story is from Joshua 24:1-18. Joshua made it clear to the Israelites that they had a choice to make. Joshua knew that God gives us a choice. We choose who or what we want to follow in life. We all have that same problem sin which separates us from God. God sent his one and only Son to die on the cross for our sins. It is up to us whether or not we take that next step to follow him. Unlike a trend or fad he will always be there for us and he will never fade away.

"But as for me and my family we will serve the Lord." Joshua 24:1-18
