The Choice

Salisbury Post- January 25, 2020

Choices. Choices. Choices.

A choice is defined as the act of selecting or making a decision when faced with two or more possibilities. They can be small, big, easy, hard, wise, foolish, right, wrong, and life-changing.

Where to start:

Start with God’s Word.


Search the scripture.

God’s Word is alive and active.

God’s Word will speak to our spirits.


Still no insight on making that choice?

Go to Plan B.

Plan B is: Repeat. Start with God’s Word.


What to remember:


A choice should not be based on feelings – but on faith.

A choice is not to be based just on this life – since this life is not the only life we have.

A choice made in obedience can bring order.

A choice made in disobedience can bring chaos.

A day to day right choice makes it easier to make better big choices later.

A choice made for good can put more good into motion.


Examples to follow:


Abraham had to decide whether to follow God’s direction to parts unknown – or to stay in a place where he was comfortable. Genesis 15:6 says that he chose to believe in the Lord. He chose to have faith in God’s Promise. He chose obedience. That choice impacted the history of the world.


In Matthew 9:9, Jesus said, “Follow me.” Matthew arose. Matthew followed Jesus. He was not bothered by the fact that he was a tax collector who would be leaving behind a really nice salary. Jesus said it. He got up. He went.


Jesus said, “You have not chosen me, but I have chosen you.” Jesus made the choice to come to earth and die for us. Those words from John 15:16 tell us that Jesus made a choice that gives us a choice – to accept or reject Him.


Jesus chose to save the world.


Yes, His choice leaves us with a choice.

Joshua 24:15 says, “Choose you this day whom you will serve.”


Choices. Choices. Choices.

Base them on the Word of God.

It will be a winning choice every time.
