Deuteronomy 30:19 (NKJV) “I call heaven and earth to witness this day against you that I have set before you life and death, the blessings and the curses; therefore choose life, that you and your descendants may live.” God cares about what we choose. His heart is reflected when He tells us choose life. Are we choosing life today? II Peter 3:9 (NKJV) states, “The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some count slackness, but is longsuffering toward us, not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance.” The Lord does not anyone to perish but come to repentance. First in choosing life we need to choose eternal life through Christ Jesus, but it does not stop there. We need to daily choose things that bring life. The Holy Spirit has been given to enable us to walk in God’s way, principles and standards; the way of life if first we have chosen eternal life. The Holy Spirit is here to help us with our thoughts, attitudes, behavior and speech to brings us in line with the Word so we will have life. John 10:10b (AMP) “…I came that they may have and enjoy life, and have it in abundance (to the full, till it overflows).” Jesus came that we might have abundant life. Life comes from walking in obedience to the Lord. It means we are submitted to His ways not our ways. His life entails walking in trust to Him, in forgiveness and love to name a few. Let us each choose life daily, the life God’s wants for us.
