Choosing to Accept God | Why it Matters

Every day, you are faced with endless amount of choices. Some are small while some can change the course of your life in an instant.

Are you looking for your purpose in life? Do you wonder what really matters and what’s going to happen after this life?

Today, you can make that decision about God that will change how you view life, death, and eternity. 

The Lord and Savior 

In Romans 3:23Paul said, “For everyone has sinned; we all fall short of God’s glorious standard. In chapter 6 of the same book, he said, “the wages of sin is death…” (v. 23a) 

If everyone sinned and will receive an eternal deathwhere should we put our hope in? 

Here is good news! In Romans 6:23b, it is said that, “the free gift of God is eternal life through Christ Jesus our Lord.”

If you want to be saved from eternal death, you can start with acknowledge Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior. This is a personal decision you can wholeheartedly accept from Jesus who offers salvation from sin and the consequences of sin. 

Make Him the Lord of every area of your life. 

“That if you confess with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.” (Romans 10:9) 

At this point you must be asking, “But why? Why do you have to make this choice? 

This takes you back to the story of Pilate in Matthew 27. 

What shall I do with Jesus? 

Pilate asked the same question when he faced Jesus 2,000 years ago.  

During that time, Jesus was betrayed by Judas and arrested by Roman soldiers. He was then facing Pilate who thinks he holds Jesus’ fate in his hands

Sitting on the judge’s seat, Pilate asked a question that caused everyone to stop and think.  

…What shall I do with Jesus who is called Christ?” (Matthew 27:22) 

It is uncertain whether Pilate fully grasped the magnitude of his own question, nor understood that he was making a decision that would affect his soul for all eternityThe immediate answer that came from the people was to crucify Jesus and that is exactly what happened. 

Today, you are faced with the same question. What are you going to do with Jesus? Will you accept Him as your Lord and Savior? Or you will reject Him? 

You are free to choose  

Path of pleasures or path of righteousness? Heaven or hell? Eternal life or eternal death? Jesus Christ or the world?  

In making this decision, there is no middle groundAlthough God has given you free will and the freedom to choosethere are consequences you cannot overpower.  

The Word of God made it clear that accepting or rejecting Jesus as Lord and Savior has eternal consequence. 

So everyone who acknowledges me before men, I also will acknowledge before my Father who is in heaven, but whoever denies me before men, I also will deny before my Father who is in heaven. (Matthew 10:32-33) 

Wherever you are right now, know that God sees and hears you. He is simply waiting for you to make your life-changing decision today: 

What shall you do with Jesus? Do you want to accept Him in your life as your Lord and Savior?
