In life we are confronted with all types of choices as we all know. One wisely said, “we are the sum of all our choices.”
Choices, not a new thing and important that we make good and right choices. Moses, when speaking to the children of Israel before his death uses these words found in Deut. 30, “I call heaven and earth to witness against you today, that I have set before you life and death, the blessing and the curse. So choose life in order that you may live you and your descendents, by loving the Lord your God, by obeying His voice, and by holding fast to Him, for this is your life and the length of your days, that you may live in this land which the Lord swore to your fathers, to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, to give them.”
Friends, not a lot has changed in choice making today for each of us. Blessing, peace, joy and true and lasting deliverance comes when we choose these three things:
1) To love the Lord our God with our total being
2) To obey His commands. For the NT believer there are two. You can name them and a commission we are given
3) To cling to Him, trust Him, to allow Him to be Lord and Master, self dying each day, Christ honored living for His glory.
Choices!!! These are truly the right choices for each of us to make!
Have a great day,
