Choice Determines Our Future

A voice of one crying in the wilderness, “Repent!” Back in the days of John the Baptist (Jesus’ cousin) the people did not like that word any more than we do. We like to think we are good and have nothing of which to repent. It sounds like a harsh word that means we have to change our ways.

Repent! I say again, repent! Why? Because time is short, and the need to repent is urgent. You may not be a murderer, or an adulterer, but try standing next to Jesus~ how do you measure up? How do I measure up? I am far from perfect and I'm sure in little ways I sin daily. Am I fully and completely obedient to God? Do I ever lie? Do I lose patience with my kids or spouse or sibling saying a harsh word that hurts? Yea, I am imperfect and cannot measure up. Thankfully, Jesus presents the solution.

Jesus loves us so much He elected to suffer and die horribly to pay our sin debt, and when I accept His gift and choose Him to be Lord of my life, I become ‘covered by the blood’ He shed on Calvary. It eradicates my sins and more~

Colossians 1:13 (AMP)
[The Father] has delivered and drawn us to Himself
out of the control and the dominion of darkness
and has transferred us into the kingdom of the Son of His love,

Our choice alters our being, changing us into a new person; it’s like going through a paradigm shift, becoming aware of truths as our eyes are opened. We live in Jesus' Kingdom now in an atmosphere of love and healing; however, we still must walk physically in the world and deal with the evil abounding there. Yet Jesus did not leave us to flounder unaided. After His resurrection from the dead, Jesus returned to His Father in heaven and with our choice to make Him Lord of our lives, Jesus sends Holy Spirit to live in us as a helper, counselor~

John 14:16Amplified Bible (AMP)
16 And I will ask the Father, and He will give you another Comforter
(Counselor, Helper, Intercessor, Advocate, Strengthener, and Standby),
that He may remain with you forever—

How much more could we ask? Jesus paid our sin debt and then offered us Holy Spirit to indwell us as our live-in Mentor, Helper, Strengthener. He assists us in living a more pure honorable, and clean life. When we choose to offer our lives to Him, there’s no limit to what we can achieve for ourselves and for the Kingdom. Yes, we’re no longer walking a selfish journey for me, me, me, but reaching out to others to walk the path together on our way to eternity with Jesus in heaven. 

Have you made your choice to walk the path to heaven?
