There is one decision that we all have to make, and it is the most important decision in this life because it determines your destination in the life to come. That is the choice to follow Jesus and submit to His will or not.
Matthew 11:28-30 ESV
Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.”
When God created Adam and Eve and placed them in a beautiful garden, He gave them the privilege of choice and though he placed them in a sinless environment they chose the way of disobedience and sin became part of our life. Jesus God the Son comes to take our place as a sacrifice for our sins because the wages of sin is death and God does not desire that any perish.
2 Peter 3:9
The Lord does not delay [as though He were unable to act] and is not slow about His promise, as some count slowness, but is [extraordinarily] patient toward you, not wishing for any to perish but for all to come to repentance.
But even in that matter, every individual must make a choice between Jesus and the world. That choice has tremendous impact on how you live your life because your choice then determines who you seek to please by how you live. This choice also determines where you end up in eternity and it also becomes the foundation and measuring stick of every other decision you make in your life.
Accepting Christ into your life means your life belongs it Him and He decides what to do with it.
20 I have been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.
Choosing Christ means giving up your life, it means no longer living your life to gratify the desires of the flesh, it means living according to the spirit. With every choice we make every day you always have to ask yourself, whether you are choosing Christ or choosing the world.
Jesus said I am the way the truth and the life…… Today choose life!
