This lesson is based upon an article written several years ago, “Peanut Butter Religion”. There is a copy of it elsewhere at this site for your consideration.
We have so many choices, of great importance and consequence in our lives! How do we approach such life-impacting decisions? One easy solution (well, not so easy, but easy to recommend) is that we simply ask, “What would please God concerning this question/issue/choice?”
Please listen to the audio of the lesson preached in Jesup, GA on Sunday, November 15, 2020 (along with reviewing the outline/handout). If you have comments or questions, please send them in by using the questions area on this site…
[CORRECTIONS to the audio file: In reviewing the lesson, I realized that I needed to correct the following: (1) at ~10:15 into the lesson, I should have clearly distinguished between the ‘error of the fathers‘ of the folks that Joshua was talking to and then the ‘errors of those present’ when in Joshua 24:15 he instructed, “Choose you this day whom ye will serve…but as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord”, (2) around ~11:08 in the lesson, I attributed previous studies about Elijah and the contest on Mt. Carmel that was covered fairly recently in our Wednesday night study as being in the NT rather than in the OT, and (3) later in the lesson, ~24:15, I referenced the “one Lord, one faith, one baptism” passage as Ephesians 6 when I should have said Ephesians 4. If you see others, please let me know. Thanks!]
May we always put “Pleasing God” as our first and foremost thought in every choice that we are about to make. It CAN make a huge difference with regard to our eternal destiny!
As always, THANKS so much for reading and listening!
