In this sermon, Pastor Geoff concludes the expositional study through the book of Joshua and calls each person to answer what Joshua says: "choose for this day whom you will serve."
No one can serve two masters. We must believe in Christ and serve Him wholeheartedly.
One of the applications of this text is family worship. Geoff shows how there are three elements involved: singing, reading the Word, and praying.
He deals with the biblical foundations of family worship, compelling motivations to do family worship, practical outworkings of family worship, and he answers common excuses or objections to family worship.
