In Joshua 24 the Israelites are invited to renew their covenant with God but they are also reminded that to be in covenant with God is no small thing. Still today, God desires more than casual commitment. Jesus isn't interested in weekend warriors but in those who are willing to fight the good fight every day of their lives. This isn't about being perfect, no one is. Rather it is about taking our relationship with God seriously; it is about a desire to learn and grow, and genuinely striving toward the life and world God desires for God’s people.
