If you don't want to serve the LORD, you must choose for yourselves today whom you will serve. —Jos_24:15
[God's] invitation is clear and nonnegotiable. He gives all and we give him all. Simple and absolute. He is clear in what he asks and clear in what he offers. The choice is up to us. Isn't it incredible that God leaves the choice to us? Think about it. There are many things in life we can't choose. We can't, for example, choose the weather. We can't control the economy.
We can't choose whether or not we are born with a big nose or blue eyes or a lot of hair. We can't even choose how people respond to us.
But we can choose where we spend eternity. The big choice, God leaves to us. The critical decision is ours.
That is the only decision which really matters.
