Billy Graham – Evangelist
Tonight, I want to take my text from my new book. It’s found Joshua 24:15.
“Choose this day whom you will serve, whether the gods your fathers served in the region beyond the river, or the gods of the Amorites in whose land you dwell, but as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.”
As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.
He made a choice. Joshua voted.
Now Joshua had led the people of Israel after the death of Moses. He was a great general, and now at the end of his life, he’s called all the people together at Shechem.
Now Shechem was between two mountains. One was the mountain of law. And the other was another mountain and in between those two mountains they gathered.
Now the history of Israel was always up and down. For a little while they’d serve the Lord and then they would fall back into their old ways and go to their old idols and in this case, it was Baal.
And he was telling them, you’ve got to make a choice. It’s between Baal and God. Which is it going to be? Who do you vote for?
You know, we have old proverbs. I suppose you have them here in North Florida.
