KEY VERSE(S)
“Now fear the LORD and serve him with all faithfulness. Throw away the gods your ancestors worshiped beyond the Euphrates River and in Egypt, and serve the LORD. But if serving the LORD seems undesirable to you, then choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods your ancestors served beyond the Euphrates, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you are living. But as for me and my household, we will serve the LORD.” Joshua 24:14-15

“For we our God’s workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God PREPARED in ADVANCE for us to do.” Ephesians 2:10

"...and you will receive a RICH WELCOME into the eternal kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ." 2 Peter 1:11
