Living your best life is a choice you have to make! No one else can do it for you. In the midst of idol worship and the pagan practices of his day, Joshua proclaimed that he would serve the Lord. We all must make the same decision. So many other things look enticing. So many other options seem like they are better than what the Bible says. People's opinions and the cultural standards seem to drown out what we know is best. That is why following Jesus must be an active conscious choice.
So who will you serve? What path will you take in life? God is calling each of us to a higher level in Him. Jesus is eager to equip you and I to do His work in this world. But living the life God calls us to live will be one of sacrifice and dedication. Get all God has for you. Choose the right path. Chose God's path. Choose to be great!
