The Personal Journey 365, the choice
If anyone chooses to do God’s will, he will find out whether my teaching comes from God or whether I speak on my own. John 7:17, NIV
Let’s face it, wherever we are at this point in our lives -be it good or bad- is the result of our choices. The good news is that each day is a new day, and no matter what our past may be, we still have the opportunity to make the one free choice that could literally change everything. It is really that simple.
In the past our choices may have been based on one of three things, intellectual analysis, emotional reasoning, or just plain probability. Regrettably, each decision process in its own way will always be limited in it ability to produce the best results, yet there is a way that produces the best for all concerned. It is the way, the truth, and the life through the simple choice of Jesus Christ. No one goes to God except through Christ. (John14:6)
To make this pivotal choice requires the simple verbal Proclamation of Faith (Salvation prayer) in Jesus Christ, as prescribed in the Bible in Romans 10: 8-10. From this one choice springs forth living waters of change that go beyond our wildest imagination. Slowly, as we continue on this journey of change the scales begin to fall off the eyes of our hearts, and truth is revealed.
Each day is a new day and with it come new challenges that require new choices. As followers of Jesus Christ these choices begin to be filtered through a purpose much bigger than ourselves. At some point on our journey, as we contemplate our past, we begin to see that every piece of the puzzle of our lives begins to fit together and discover it was Jesus that chose us, not we that chose Him.
