The Choice

Deut 6: 26 "Today I am giving you the choice between a blessing and a curse! 27 You will be blessed if you obey the commands of the LORD your God that I am giving you today. 28 You will receive a curse if you reject the commands of the LORD your God and turn from his way by worshiping foreign gods."

Because we live in the light of the new covenant- this choice is very clear and distinct.- What do you do with Jesus Christ? If you accept Him, trust in Him, follow Him, learn to love Him - You will be blessed. The blessings include forgiveness, answered prayer, direction of God's Spirit through His God-breathed Bible-blessed relationships, joy in living, peace, purpose, success! and many more!

Rejection of Christ is a curse. He became a curse for you as He suffered on the cross. If you reject Him, you will not survive. You will gradually be hardened to the ways of God and declare yourself to be His enemy. In effect, you are worshipping something else- which is usually yourself.

Choose Christ while He is still offered.
