Oct 5 Devotion: As For Me

Joshua 24:15 – “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.”

     Chapter 24 of Joshua are the last words of Joshua before he dies. He is giving a charge to Israel to cleave to the Lord, to take heed to the Lord, and to love the Lord God. He uses 3 words in chapter 24 of Joshua and the 12th verse. ( AS FOR ME)
