YOUR SALVATION DEPENDS ON YOUR CHOICES!
I call heaven and earth as witnesses today against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing; therefore choose life, that both you and your descendants may live (Deuteronomy 30:19).
Many people wonder that if God really wanted everyone to be saved; therefore, let Him save us because He has the power to do so. Yes of course, God has the power to save everyone of us but He had given us the power of choices. The Bible says in the opening text that I call heaven and earth as witnesses today against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing; therefore choose life, that both you and your descendants may live.
Joshua demonstrated this power of choices vividly in the Bible in Joshua 24:15 thus, “And if it seems evil to you to serve the Lord, choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the River, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you dwell. But as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.” The power to make choices concerning your salvation is in your hand.
This was the reason why Jesus Christ never in any way forced His disciples to follow Him. When the crowd chose to desert Him because of His hard teaching, He turned to His disciples and asked them, “Do you also want to go away?” (John 6:67). Jesus Christ knew quite well that man has the power to make choices concerning his own salvation. Even though God wants you to be saved, He can never force Himself on you because of your power of choices in life.
Daily Tip: Your salvation in life depends on the choices you make today. Shalom!
Golden Text: For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life (John 3:16).
