Present yourself before God

To read the Bible in a year, read Joshua 23–24 on March 29, In the year of our Lord 2017

By Don Ruhl

Before Joshua gave his final and sober address to the people of Israel, he and the rest of the leaders did something exceedingly important,

Then Joshua gathered all the tribes of Israel to Shechem and called for the elders of Israel, for their heads, for their judges, and for their officers; and they presented themselves before God (Joshua 24.1). 

Before you present yourself to God’s people, present yourself to God, even as these leaders did. For example, before you gather with your congregation the next time, pray to God that you will be what He wants you to be around your brethren and what they need for you to be.

Questions:

  • Who runs your life?
  • Do you consult the Lord for what you do in life?
