DEDICATING OURSELVES (5) - Act of commitment
From Joshua 24

Present yourselves before the Lord your God; recall his saving acts of love; fear the Lord and serve him faithfully; cast away all other gods and worship him alone.

Will you choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve:
we and our households will serve the Lord.

The Lord himself saved us from slavery to sin; he did great miracles in front of our eyes; it is he who protects us on our journey; it is he who drives out out enemy:
we will serve the Lord -
he is our God.

The Lord is a holy God, he is a jealous God; he will not countenance your disobedience or condone your sins:
we will serve the Lord.

You are not able to serve the Lor; if you forsake the Lord and serve other gods, he make an end of you, after he has been good to you.
we will serve the Lord.

You are witnesses against yourselves that you have chosen to serve the Lord?
Yes, we are witnesses.

Throw away all other gods among you and yield your hearts to the Lord, the God of Israel:
we will serve the Lord our God and obey him alone.

See! These walls will witness against you; they have heard your words and the word of Lord; they will witness against you if you are untrue to your God. Go in peace. Amen.
