Today’s world is literally falling apart. The beautiful earth that our God created no longer looks like it did when He first created it. Man has destroyed what God graciously gave us. He gave us a choice and did mankind really make all the wrong choices and de- stroyed all we can see. Most have also made the choice to destroy themselves spiritually. Our Lord chose to die on the cross that we might live with Him for all eternity. As His children, we have made the right choice. We answered the call when God reached down His hand of mercy and saved us from our sins. We made a choice just like everyone else in this world. The only difference is that we made the right choice.
Now, that isn’t the end of this story. We have more choices to make. Will we continue to live for Him? Will we give Him our all as He gave His all for us? We make those choices every day. We make our choice by the way we talk, the way we act, by the things we choose to do and not to do, how we worship or choose not to worship. We must continue to make our choice in all we do EVERY SINGLE DAY. The Lord says in 2 Cor. 6:17 “Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord”, and in Joshua 24:15 “choose you this day whom you will serve”. He is telling us to make our choice. We can’t afford to let down our guard or just do the bare minimum when it comes to living for the Lord. Hebrews 12:1-2 says “let us run with patience the race that is set before us, Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith”. That means we have to live for God EVERY SINGLE DAY. If we do, we will make it. 1 Peter 4:18 says “And if the righteous scarcely be saved, where shall the ungodly and the sinner appear?” That means give it your all or else in today’s modern language.
This life is hard and it is getting harder every day. Without the Holy Ghost actively living, breathing, and working in our lives on a daily basis we will not make it. Without the Holy Ghost, we have no protection from the devil or this world, we’re walking alone. But with the Holy Ghost actively inside us, we will walk with God and we will be overcomers. There is a prize at the end of this life and it is called a crown of life. We must run this race faithfully each day, we can never give up. Jesus has never given up on us and He never will. We all must have the same mindset of “Never Give Up” and we will make it home with Him. Keep the faith and don’t let the world cause you to make the wrong choice. Make the right choice – Jesus Christ.
