Good Morning Warrior!
Word for the Day:
(Deuteronomy 30:1 - 31:13)
Text: Deuteronomy 30:19-20
“I call heaven and earth as witnesses today against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing; therefore choose life, that both you and your descendants may live;
that you may love the LORD your God, that you may obey His voice, and that you may cling to Him, for He is your life and the length of your days; and that you may dwell in the land which the LORD swore to your fathers, to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, to give them.”
“Choose Life,” is on our menu for Breakfast this morning.
After rehearsing the Law and Israel’s history of obedience and disobedience, Moses finished his sermon with the plea to “Choose Life, so they and their descendants may live; to love, obey, and cling to God, for He is their life.
Choosing Life for Israel was to obey the law, provide an animal sacrifice, and trust in this animal sacrifice to bring atonement with God, and do this every day morning and evening.
To choose life today is to obey the Word of God Himself; “in Him was life, and the life was the light of men.”(John 1:4).
“And the Word became flesh and dwelled among us and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth.” (John 1:14)
In other words, to choose life is to Love, Trust, and Obey Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior of your life. Jesus is not just part of your life He Is Your Life!
Our Choice becomes our Influence to point our descendants, and others to Him also; so that we will all live in heaven with Him forever. Ooooh Rah!
Warrior at your side,
Jesus and Billy
