Serve the Lord: Remember His Faithfulness

Joshua 4:1-24

Now fear the Lord and serve him with all faithfulness.  Throw away the gods your forefathers worshiped beyond the River and in Egypt, and serve the Lord.  But if serving the Lord seems undesirable to you, then choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods your forefathers served beyond the River, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you are living.  But as for me and my household, we will serve the Lord.  Joshua 24:14-15

 

Context:  God miraculously led the nation across the Jordan into the Promised Land and directed them to create a memorial to this event as a testimony to them and the world of His mighty power.
