Serving God


[The people said to Joshua] we will serve the Lord our God, we will obey Him only. Joshua 24:24


There are certain matters that are settled matters:

Firstly, we should be determined to serve our God.
Next, we should make it a priority to do what God says we should do.
We should serve the Lord our God and obey Him.

If they listen and obey God, then they will be blessed with properity throughout their lives. All their years will be pleasant
Job 36:11
This should be your ambition: to live a quiet life, minding your own business and working with your hands, just as we commanded you before.
1 Thessalonians 4:11

  1. There are not many blogs posting Bible verses, you are doing a great job.

    I forgot to reply you earlier. I first came to New Zealand as a student in 1978, then I stayed for 13 year. My husband went to Singapore, and we were there for 16 years.

    Now I have been back for 4 years. thats makes me 17 years in New Zealand.

  2. Jo, you are so correct in your ways... we should always seek the direction of the Master Jesus, the one who is called Christ.
    But I also think that in that bible, we haven't been told the whole story either. I believe that there is much more to it. Exclussiveness and power struggles have been the result of miss interpretation... just look at the history of the conquest of the "church" in the way that the people of the Americas were treated, actually enslaved,by so called christians... They allready knew there is only one God and that His Son is the way...
    There is a concept of universal unification where as all people of the earth will understand that it is love that created and love that saves... And that we all have been worshiping the same God the whole time...
    May The Long Life Happiness One bless you richly in all that you do!
