Bible Ballistics: BBs #566 Choosing Is Your Choice???
We are living in a culture that wants to remove ‘consequences’ from life choices. Well, while they be delayed, denied or dismissed by the masses—consequences will come for our choices! God says so—not me! So, I simply want to share a reminder for us all of what God has said. If you need to make a ‘change’ in your “choosing”, may this encourage you in that direction. If you are dealing with the effect of other’s choices on your life, may you find God’s direction for you in these passages. I pray that we all can be found walking “worthy” of our Lord.
“Be not deceived;
God is not mocked:
for whatsoever a man soweth,
that shall he also reap.
8 For he that soweth to his flesh
shall of the flesh reap corruption;
but he that soweth to the Spirit
shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting.
9 And let us not be weary in well doing:
for in due season
we shall reap,
if we faint not.” Galatians 6:7-9
“Now therefore fear the LORD,
and serve him
and in truth:
and put away the gods which your fathers served
on the other side of the flood,
and in Egypt;
and serve ye the LORD.
15And if it seem evil unto you to serve the LORD,
choose you this day
whom ye will serve;
whether the gods which
your fathers served
that were on the other side of the flood,
or the gods of the Amorites,
in whose land ye dwell:
but as for me and my house,
we will serve the LORD.” Joshua 24:15
And Jesus’ own words to each of us. And as my mother used to say:
“You can fool some of the people
all of the time;
you can fool all of the people
some of the time;
but YOU can’t fool God!”
“No man can serve two masters:
for either he will hate the one,
and love the other;
or else he will hold to the one,
and despise the other.
Ye cannot serve God and mammon.” Matthew 6:24
“Then saith Jesus unto him,
Get thee hence, Satan:
for it is written,
Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God,
and him only shalt thou serve.” Matthew 4:10
Who are you choosing to serve? It’s your choice but there is a consequence to every choice. Whose servant are you?
“Know ye not,
that to whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey,
his servants ye are to whom ye obey;
whether of sin unto death,
or of obedience unto righteousness?” Romans 6:16
Amen and Amen!
