The Power of Choice


When God created man, He gave him free will. This presupposes that man

has the power to make choice. YOUR CHOICE DETERMINES YOUR DESTINY. It

shapes your life, and determines the course of your life. Who you are

today is as a result of the choices you made yesterday. Also the

choice you make today will determine what your tomorrow will be.

If you are a medical doctor or an engineer, it is because you chose to

read medicine or engineering. Everyday, we are confronted with choices

to make. Choice of the type of car, book or food to buy, the kind of

person to marry, the denomination to belong to, the type of job to do,

etc.

There is power in the choice we make everyday. This point was

underscored by Moses in Deuteronomy 30:19, "I call heaven and earth to

record this day against you that I have set before you life and death,

blessing and cursing: therefore choose life that both thou and thy

seed may live". Moses called the people of Israel to make a choice

between life and death, blessing and cursing. The choice they made

determined what happend to them. However, Moses advised them to choose

life for them to live; have you realised that there is power in the

choice you make?

Equally, this point was buttressed by Joshua in Joshua 24:15, "And if

it seem evil unto you to serve the Lord, choose you this day whom you

will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on

the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose

land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord."

The choice to serve the Lord is open to all. Joshua and his household

have chosen to serve the Lord. What is your choice? Remember that the

choice you make determines your destination. In Matthew 7:13-14, we

see that there are but two ways to travel to our destination – The Way

to Life and The Way to Destruction. There are but two roads – the

narrow and the broad. Everyone is on one road or the other. The choice

is yours.

¤ Heaven is REAL! ¤ and ¤ Hell is REAL! ¤

Which way are you taking? There is a way that seemeth right unto a

man but the end thereof are the ways of death (Provebs 16:25). Jesus

Christ is the way to life. "Jesus said unto him, I am the way, the

truth, and the life; no man cometh unto the Father but by me" (John

4:16). This implies that all who receive Him as Lord and Saviour are

on their way to Heaven. I want you to know that God loves you and does

not want you to perish (Matthew 18:14). "For God so loved the world,

that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him

should not perish, but have everlasting life" (John 3:16). Not

accepting Jesus as one's Lord and Saviour means one has made the

choice to be in hell passively or actively.

Choose and trust in Jesus now and be saved. He is your only way and

only hope of Heaven.

Pray this prayer:

Heavenly Father, I know that I am a sinner and that I cannot save

myself. I believe that Jesus died and shed His blood for my sins in

order to save me from sin. I confess my sins and repent of them.

Therefore I invite Jesus into my life as Lord and Saviour. I thank You

Lord for saving me. Amen!
