“See, I set before you today life and prosperity, death and destruction. For I command you today to love the Lord your God, to walk in obedience to him, and to keep his commands, decrees and laws; then you will live and increase, and the Lord your God will bless you in the land you are entering to possess.” Deuteronomy 30:15-16
“This day I call the heavens and the earth as witnesses against you that I have set before you life and death, blessings and curses. Now choose life, so that you and your children may live and that you may love the Lord your God, listen to his voice, and hold fast to him.” Deuteronomy 30:19-20
Following Jesus is a choice. It always has been. God is a gentleman. He will never force obedience or devotion to Him. His gift of salvation is available for everyone but we have to choose to accept it.
Although these verses are from the Old Testament, they still apply today.
There is life or death.
Blessing or curses.
Abundance or lack.
Obedience or disobedience.
We can live for our own glory or the glory of God. The choice is yours.
Which choice will you make today?
