Who is Your God?

We just came home from a Summer Camp that our church participated this year.

It's our second year attending in that camp and we will be conducting our own camp next year. I remembered one of the message of one of the preachers there.

He read the verse that follows:
And if it seem evil unto you to serve the LORD, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD. (Joshua 24:15)

The message is targeted to every individual that is listening at that moment. "Who is your God?" Young People, maybe your god is your studies, your being popular in school, your peers, your boyfriend, your girlfriend, your computer, your television, your toys, your vices, your ipod, your work, or even your pet.

God is not asking us if we are saved or not, he is just asking us in that moment if the god that we are serving is the God that saved us from the damnation to hell. The God who died on the cross for the remission of our sins. The God who constantly provides everything we need. For whatever we prioritize other than God Almighty, that is our god. And that is idolatry.

He is not asking us if we are Christians for a long time already or just got saved few days ago. He is just asking us our heart's desires. To serve the One and Only God who continually loved us even to our lapses and shortcomings.

He is asking us to serve Him now or not anymore.

He is telling us to declare NOW on whose side we are to follow.

So Young People, decide now, Who is Your God?
