Time to Choose

Description

At times in life, we find ourselves facing a decision with no idea which way to go.

Read: 1 Kings 18:16-21 & Joshua 24:15 & Mark 8:27-29

All of us know what it’s like to be confused. At times in life, we find ourselves facing a decision with no idea which way to go. We pray and ask for direction, but we still feel paralyzed. I was at that place and when a devotion took me to I Kings 18:21. In this verse, the prophet Elijah asks, “How long will you waver between two opinions?” My situation was serious, but I had to laugh. God knows our hearts and our circumstances so well. It was as if He was saying, “Make a decision one way or the other, but don’t waver any more. It’s time to move.”

Elijah went on to tell the people, “If the Lord is God, follow Him, but if Baal is God, follow Him.” Jesus issued the same challenge when He came to Earth hundreds of years later. He called His disciples by saying, “Come follow me.” As Jesus’s reputation grew, people started theorizing about Him. In Mark 8, Jesus asked his disciples, “But who do you say I am?” In other words, “Stop wavering between theories and make a decision.”

Who do you think Jesus is? Because everything in the Bible really comes down to that one decision. Will we follow Christ? Will we seek Him?  If you are standing at the crossroads and have not accepted His gift of salvation, don’t waver. Accept Him as He came, a humble Savior, and joyfully adore Him.
