“This day I call the heavens and the earth as witnesses against you that I have set before you life and death, blessings and curses. Now choose life, so that you and your children may live” – Deuteronomy 30:19 NIV
No one can force someone else to be anything, everything we are now and everything we will become lies squarely in our hands. We are the sum total of our choices. “Anyone who chooses to do the will of God will find out whether my teaching comes from God or whether I speak on my own.” John 7:17 NIV, everyone has an opportunity and a responsibility to find out what the truth is and henceforth live by or shun it. This is what makes the judgement of God just and requisite, yes people make excuses and “kick against the goads” as it were, but said people still retain the power of choice, and this is the thing that in turn condemns or exonerates us. We could choose to do the will of God or not, we choose life or death, daily!
“Your word is a lamp to my feet And a light to my path.” Psalms 119:105. After receiving Christ and the indwelling of the Holy Spirit, our next greatest need is the Word (Colossians 3:16). Without the Word, there’s no true and effective Christian life. How much of the Word is in us depends on how much of it we take in, there’s nothing that can dictate that circumstance apart from our daily choices. It is impossible for any believer to run out of steam if they are feeding on the Word, it is impossible for a believer to give up if they are feeding on the word of God. It is impossible for a believer to be confused when they are feeding on the word of God. So it’s either you become a dejected, defeated, and confused “Christian” or one full of the Word bearing the fruit of Its promise, the choice is yours, we all have 24hrs each day to this effect, choose wisely!
