Who will you serve? Greetings BCF, As toddlers we decided if we wanted apple juice or grape juice with our crackers. As teenagers some of us chose to rebel against authority, and as adults some of us will choose the people with whom we will want to spend our lives. From the beginning to the end life is full of choices. Even today we’ve made so many choices: from what to wear in the morning to what to eat; the people with whom we’ve surround ourselves, to the music we’ve listened to in our cars; whether to attend class or skip class, to taking some time out of our day for devotion. It is the power of choices that can lead us down the wide road to destruction, or down the narrow road that leads to life (Matthew 7:13-14). Joshua was God’s servant; chosen

to bring Moses’ work to completion and to establish the children of Israel in the Promised Land. Joshua, just like each and every one of us, had to make a major decision in his life about whether to follow God or not. In the town of Shechem, Joshua assembled all the tribes of Israel elders, leaders, judges and officials and said to the people, this is what the Lord, the God of Israel, says: “Now fear the LORD and serve him with all faithfulness. Throw away the gods your forefathers worshiped beyond the River and in Egypt, and serve the LORD (Joshua 24:14). In this scripture God tells us what we should do, but yet we still have a choice. Joshua 24:14 continues, saying “But if serving the LORD seems undesirable to you, then choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods your forefathers served beyond the River, or the gods of the Amo-

rites, in whose land you are living. God wants you to choose today whom you will serve, because the Bible says “No one can serve two masters. Either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other” (Matthew 6:24). Joshua made the right choice and took a bold stand for the Lord and declared “But as for me and my household, we will serve the LORD" (Joshua 24:15).
Greetings from ... Bethel Campus Fellowship (BCF) on G e or gia State campus has truly been blessed by this year’s Leadership Conference. Since then we have been engaging in daily fellowship, prayer, and bible studies. Through the daily fellowship the Lord has encouraged, strengthened, and given us boldness to take a stand for Him and truly serve God on campus and in our lives. Two weeks ago, we dedicated two days for outreach and evangelism. On the first day we went out on the campus and passed out flyers telling about the day, time, and place we met for fellowship. Not only did we hand out flyers, but we spoke to students about Christ, and prayed with them as well. The second day was truly wonderful
and required only a little talking. Our brethren from West Georgia actually gave us the idea, and we decided to run with it. We made posters with encouraging messages. For example, one poster said “Did you wake up this morning? Then you are blessed, Jesus Loves You." We then stood in an area on campus where a lot of students congregate and held up the posters. The responses were wonderful. One girl came up to me, and expressed that she was a believer, she had recently been saved, and had been looking for a fellowship to join. We exchanged contact information and since then we have been fellowshipping and growing in the Lord together. That is o n l y o n e testimony, but I know that there are many more to come.
