“For this commandment which I give you today is not too mysterious for you, nor is it far off. It is not in heaven, that you should say, Who will ascend into heaven for us and bring it to us, that we may hear it and do it? Nor is it beyond the sea, that you should say, Who will go over the sea for us and bring it to us, that we may hear it and do it?
But the word is very near you, in your mouth and in your heart, that you may do it.
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 your life and death, blessing and cursing; therefore choose life, that both you and your descendants may live; that you may love the Lord your God, that you may obey His voice, and that you may cling to Him, for He is your life and the length of your days; and that you may dwell in the land which the Lord swore to your fathers, to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, to give them. Deuteronomy 30:11-20 NKJV
God spoke these words to the children of Israel many years ago. God is speaking the same words to us today. God’s commands and desires are the same for us today.
God is calling us to choose whom we shall serve today. He is calling us to choose life or death, blessing, or prosperity. Our Heavenly Fathers is calling us to choose eternal life in Jesus Christ or eternal separation from the Lord!
Every word of God will come to pass just as He delivered it to us! Every person who has lived upon the earth will be held accountable for their decisions! Make yours today!
God created us in His image and likeness. Jesus created us so He could love us. Jesus created us to love Him.
Jesus is calling us to make wise choices. He is holding out His arms of love and calling us to live according to His good and perfect plan. What is God’s plan for us?
Jesus wants us to love Him with all our hearts, with all our minds and with all our strength. Jesus wants us to love the people near us as much as He does. Jesus wants us to live for Him today. Jesus wants us to spend eternity basking in His love for us!
You have the freedom to choose how you live. Choose wisely. Choose to live for Jesus today. Choose to spend eternity with Jesus in the beauty of His holiness!
