It's Your Choice

Posted on Thu, Sep 15, 2011

Joshua said, " Choose for yourselves this day who you will serve" (Joshua 24:15). This challenge, viewed in the light of the New Testament, suggests three outstanding lessons regarding our salvation. First, we must make a choice between Christ and at the devil. To refuse Christ leaves us automatically on the Devil's Side. Jesus said, "He who is not with Me is against Me" (Matt. 12:30). Second, this choice is a personal choice. Joshua said, "Choose for yourselves.... whom you will serve." Through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, we can be born again and become childred of Godl. But we must do the believing yourselves. Third, there is an urgency in this charge. "Choose for yourselves THIS DAY," not next month, not a week from today, not tomorrow, but THIS DAY. Have you made that all-important choice? Have you trusted Jesus Christ as your Savior? If not, do so right now! Remember, the choice is yours,

 

Now is the time to choose the Lord tommorrow may to too late.

Just saying "I'm Sorry" is not enough for God either. The leaders of Israel, facing trouble brought on by their sin, thought that merely returning to prescribed sacrificial offering would solve their problems. But God rejected that kind of "repentance." It was as fleeting as " a morning cloud" and " the early dew" that quickly fades away (Hosea 6:4). Merely saying "I'm sorry" is no different than the empty rituals of the Israelites. God said, "I desire mercy and not sacrifice, and the knowledge of God more that burnt offerings" (v6). He meant that repentance must result in a change of heart and a change in behavior. That's "godly sorrow" 2 Corinthians 7:10
