In this passage Joshua speaks to the people of Israel and tells them to make a choice. Will they serve Yahweh, the true God, or turn away from Him to worship and serve false gods. He then proclaims: “As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.” What does it mean for us to say those words with Joshua and how do we live them out in esablishing a Christian household?

Many would like to tear these words out of Scripture, but Paul’s words to wives and husbands are often misunderstood. We will explore what Paul says here and why these words are so important in our “me, me, me” culture. While the words speak more to married couples, they also speak to those who are single about their attitude going into marriage if they marry, and the attitude we should encourage in others should they voice concerns about a spouse with us.
