Not to Decide Is to Decide

BIBLE MEDITATION:

I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live. Deuteronomy 30:19

DEVOTIONAL THOUGHT:

Years ago, I was witnessing to a young lady in Florida. I asked her if she had received Jesus as her Lord and Savior. She became teary-eyed and said,

“I just don’t seem…no…I can’t do it today.”

I asked her, “Don’t you realize that if you don’t receive Him, you’re denying Him?”

“Oh,” she said, “I wouldn’t deny Him for anything!”

I said, “But there’s no middle ground.”

And yet she still refused.

“Before you go,” I said, “would you shake hands with me?”

“Well, certainly.”

And so I said, “If you’ll take Christ as your Savior, take my right hand. If you’ll take hell and refuse Christ, take my left hand.”

She refused to take either of my hands.

ACTION POINT:

Every person has a choice. If you say, “I think I won’t choose just now…” you’ve made a choice. There is no neutral ground. You are either crowning Jesus as Lord of your life or you are not. Which is it, my friend?
