OPTions

But if serving the Lord seems undesirable to you, then choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve… But as for me and my household, we will serve the LORD. (Josh 24:15 selcted NIV)

The greatest gift God gave us was free choice. He will never force himself on us nor trick us into following Him. We have the option of following the world, of thinking in the popular mold or of following Jesus and doing things His way.

There are consequences to our choices. Deuteronomy 30:19 says: “I’ve set life and death before you today: both blessings and curses. Choose life, that it may be well with you – you and your children.”

The options are clear. Let’s make our choice.
