Momentous Decisions

[226 words]

Not every decision you make will be a major one. It matters not which type of car you buy, as long as it is not a lemon! It does not matter whether you wear a suit and tie or some other modest outfit to worship. But some decisions are life changing. Some decisions either build your character and reputation or destroy you. These are momentous decisions: marriage partner, the career you pursue, whether or not to serve the God of the Bible, whether or not to worship God and how you do that worship.

Moses saw a burning bush and he said, “I will now turn aside and see this great sight, why the bush does not burn (up)” (Exodus 3: 1-3). Moses decided to investigate the bush rather than running away from the fire. It was a decision that made all the difference in his life and in the history of a nation.

The Jews heard Peter’s sermon in Acts 2 and 3,000 decided to be baptized. Another group of Jews heard a similar sermon and decided to stone the preacher (Acts 7). You and I have decisions to make. God did not make us robots. He made us people of free will and we decide whether to follow His will or not. Heaven or hell is our individual decision (Hebrews 5:9; 2 Thessalonians 1:8).
