For those who have made an initial commitment to Jesus, we may remember the moment with vivid details. For other followers, we can remember a retreat, camp, short-term trip, or moment where God broke through for us. Sadly, those moments can be few and far between. And until God breaks through again, we drift through life, overwhelmed by the everyday choices of what to eat, wear, watch, do, and whom to do with! The final words of Joshua are a summons from drifting to rededication. Every day is a chance to say, "God I give my life to you."
