CHOOSE LIFE

September 10:2018

See, I have set before you today life and good, death and evil, in that I command you today to love the LORD your God, to walk in His ways, and to keep His commandments, His statutes, and His judgments, that you may live and multiply; and the LORD your God will bless you in the land which you go to possess. But if your heart turns away so that you do not hear, and are drawn away, and worship other gods and serve them, I announce to you today that you shall surely perish; you shall not prolong your days in the land which you cross over the Jordan to go in and possess. 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 30:15-19 (NKJV)

`

Daily as we live, we have choices to make. In the morning, we can choose whether to lie in bed or to get up and work. For our spiritual lives, we can choose to pray or not to pray. For our diet, we can choose whether to eat good food or junk. Some choices are inconsequential and some are vital to our lives and wellbeing.

But the most important choice you will ever make is to choose LIFE. It is a decision you must make all the time - choose life that you may live or choose death that you may die. God is offering us these choices today, and it is up to you to make the right decision.
So, how do you do choose LIFE?

  • Accept Jesus as your Lord and Saviour – The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly (John 10:10)
    Trust and obey God’s commands – If you follow his leading, you will profit in all things – that’s life! There will be no death in your life. But this is what I commanded them, saying, 'Obey My voice, and I will be your God, and you will be My people; and you will walk in all the way which I command you, that it may be well with you (Jeremiah 7:23)
  • Be led by the Holy Spirit – He will lead you to make the right choices as a son of God. For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God (Romans 8:14).
  • Speak faith words, not doubt – Do not use your words to destroy what God has already made alive for you. From the fruit of their mouth a person’s stomach is filled; with the harvest of their lips they are satisfied. The tongue has the power of life and death, and those who love it will eat its fruit (Proverbs 18:20-21).

Beloved, choosing ‘LIFE’ is your choice to make. See, I have set before you today life and death, blessing and cursing; therefore choose life, that both you and your descendants may live. God is saying these same words to you today. He wants to bless you abundantly, but He needs you to choose Him above everything else.
