Every day we live we are faced with choices. Some are small and relatively insignificant. Others are just the opposite. They are major life choices that carry great impact. We may mess up occasionally on the smaller decisions of life; but we better get the big ones right.
Of course, the greatest choice of all concerns what we are going to do with Jesus Christ. Will we accept Him or reject Him? Will we believe in Him or not believe in Him? The Bible places all of humanity in one of two camps: the choosing, and the chosen.
The prophet Joel had a vision in which he saw “multitudes in the valley of decision” (Joel 3:14). Picture what the prophet saw: an entire valley full of people swinging between Heaven and Hell contemplating the same decision faced by Pilate, “What then shall I do with Jesus who is called Christ?” (Matthew 27:22).
Obviously, the wise thing to do is to choose Jesus. Everyone who chooses Jesus moves from the camp of the choosing to that of the chosen (Ephesians 1:4). The chosen are the ones who have chosen! Have you done that? If not, now is the time (2 Corinthians 6:2). And once you make the initial decision for Jesus, then choose to serve Him every moment of every day (Joshua 24:15).
