God is a jealous God. He demands devotion to Him with all the heart, soul, and mind of man. He knows one cannot love Him and serve another god, whether it be an idol of stone or wood or sports or recreation or family or money or fleshly lusts.
Jesus said one cannot serve two masters (Matt. 6:24; 12:30). He further said that one cannot be His servant who is not willing to forsake all (Matt. 16:24-25). May we today echo Joshua’s words of devotion: “As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord” (Josh. 24:15).
