Yes, we must make choices daily, even multiple choice decisions throughout the day. With this daily task of choosing, consider and ask: “How much time and thought is given to our Spiritual Life choices?” Joshua’s challenge to Israel should still ring loud and clear: “Choose today who you will serve.” Would they – Will WE serve the gods and ways of the world? Or will the choice be to serve faithfully and completely the Lord God Almighty?” (Josh. 24:14-18)

Folks, it’s easy to talk, to declare our love and commitment to serve Jesus. Yet, we must acknowledge the “Fruit of our actions” speak to our real choices and commitments! In truth, only two choices are before us. Jesus identifies and defines them for us: “Enter by the narrow way, for the gate is wide, and the way is broad that leads to destruction, and many are those who enter it. For the gate is small, and the way is narrow that leads to life, and few are those who find it.” (Mt. 7:13-14).

Yes, a multitude of choices are before us! Today and everyday make it your clear choice to Pursue and Serve Jesus. “Seek first His Kingdom and His Righteousness; and all these things shall be added to you.” (Mt. 6:33) “Choose life in order that you may live, you and your descendants.” Choose Jesus for He alone has the words of Eternal Life!
