Make a Choice

Today is your day. Today is the day to make a choice.

As believers in Jesus, we are eternally secure in the love of our God – He will never leave of forsake us…He is always for us. Without question, God is able to save those who call upon His name and firmly secure His children for eternity. He is good!

And yet, in His infinite wisdom, Jesus has given us a will – the ability and desire to make decisions. Though I do not understand the depth of His sovereignty and the outworking of our wills in His kingdom, one thing I am sure of – Jesus is calling us to make a choice.

Make a Choice

Let’s cut straight to the chase – Who will you serve today?

As a child of God, you have been given the privilege to represent Jesus everywhere you go today. He has deposited His very Spirit into your body and has enabled you to hear and respond to His voice. As Paul says, “…the one who joins himself to the Lord is one spirit with Him…do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit…?” (1 Cor. 6:17-19)

Your very body is filled with the Holy Spirit of God…right now. And make no mistake, this is not for the “super Christians” or only for pastors and leaders in the church – this truth is true for everyone who has been born again through faith in Jesus.

All of the wealth of God is ready and willing to empower you for His purposes today. The question you must answer is simple: Will you, as an act of your will, freely surrender all that you are to Him today? Will you lay yourself down on the altar of love and offer yourself as a living sacrifice? Yes or No. Your answer to that question will determine the entire course of your life.

See His Goodness

If this is a struggle for you, be encouraged. I am convinced – a glimpse of His goodness is all the resource needed to live a life of full surrender. The moment we see Jesus for who He really is, a life of surrender is not really a surrender at all. The glory of His goodness and love compels us to give all of ourselves to Him. He is so beautiful, so worth all that is His.

So, would you build your life around knowing Him? Will you surrender your time and energy to know the God of absolute worth? Forget religion, forget obligation and duty – just sit at His feet and stare into His face. I am sure of it, a glimpse of His goodness will forever change your life.

Today is your day. Today is the day to make a choice.

Seeking Him with you!
