Lift Your Spirit

15 But if serving the Lord seems undesirable to you, then choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods your ancestors served beyond the Euphrates, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you are living. But as for me and my household, we will serve the Lord.” Joshua 24:15 NIV

Decisions, decisions, decisions. Life is full of them but the critical one determines your eternal life. There is no gray area. There is no compromise. No room for a little bit of this and a little bit of that. Resolute. One clear determined and applied answer.

15 I know your deeds, that you are neither cold nor hot. I wish you were either one or the other! 16 So, because you are lukewarm—neither hot nor cold—I am about to spit you out of my mouth. Revelation 3:15-16 NIV

While we still have breath in our lungs, we have the opportunity to change the decision — if we feel we need to. There is no guarantee that any of us will arise tomorrow to see that new day, so the question remains: “Have you secured your eternal soul?”

“Have you made the right decision?

Sometimes that decision comes with a price that costs us relationships, jobs, community, status … all of which must be weighed against our soul on the scales. And if any of these mean more to you than (eternal) life itself, then you’ve already made your decision.

You might say, “I’ve not made up my mind.” However, your silence or refusal to commit is every bit your answer.

23 “Whoever is not with me is against me,  Luke 11:23a NIV

“Today, if you hear his voice,
    do not harden your hearts Hebrews 3:8a NIV

12 See to it, brothers and sisters, that none of you has a sinful, unbelieving heart that turns away from the living God. 13 But encourage one another daily, as long as it is called “Today,” so that none of you may be hardened by sin’s deceitfulness.  Hebrews 3:12-13 NIV

Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. John 14:16 NIV
