You Have Two Choices


“You have two choices,” the Holy Spirit told me once I bent down on my knees to pray.

I was all ears. Ready to hear what I wanted. That I could choose between two things regarding a particular matter. I could choose what I wanted. What felt best and right to me. What was comfortable. What I liked. Preferred. Loved. Whatever I liked best, it would be perfectly fine to pick. And God would be totally content and pleased regardless. Right?

Oh, so wrong!

“You can follow me or not,” the Holy Spirit spoke.

Now wait a minute! When we believe in Jesus, we get to pick and choose whatever we want to do and have in life, right?

Oh, not so!

The Lord Jesus Christ was reminding me that those who believe in Him are to lovingly, humbly, devotedly, and faithfully follow Him.

This life is not about us. It is about Jesus. And no matter the cost to our flesh, we are to love and obey, to praise and worship, to serve and glorify, to experience and enjoy, to follow Jesus all the days of our lives and forevermore!

You have two choices, friend. Follow the Lord Jesus – or not.

Make the right decision. Follow Jesus forever and ever, AMEN!

“He who loves his life will lose it, and he who hates his life in this world will keep it for eternal life. If anyone serves Me, let him follow Me; and where I am, there My servant will be also. If anyone serves Me, him My Father will honor.” John 12:25-26 NKJV
