Have you ever wondered where you would be if you had not made a change?
Life changes in a moment! Life is also full of decisions. One bad decision can change the whole course of your life. One good decision can do the same. In my 43 years of life I have made some good decisions and many bad ones.
The other morning I had a sobering thought, “what if Christ had not intervened in my life, where would I be?” The thought took me back to 1990 when my life was on course for a devastating shipwreck. If Christ had not intervened in my life I would be a thief, or an alcoholic, or in jail, or maybe dead. I was one of those kinds of guys that needed a change. I was such a “heathen” that when I went to meet my future-in-laws, my mother-in-law to be, cried.
I am not proud of the way I used to live, but Jesus saved a wretch like me. What about you? Where would you be without Him? Where will you be if you do not surrender to Him? We can plan for our future but our future is not guaranteed. One bad choice can ruin your life. One good choice can change everything for good.
We all have a choice to make. The options are: we can live like we want and act like there are no consequences to our actions or choices; Or we can live with the thought that my decisions will affect me and sometimes others too. Many people do not like to be confronted with this fact. The truth is that there is only one choice that can be made that will alter your life for eternity. It is the choice to follow Jesus. To surrender your life to Him.
What is your choice? Will you chance living the same way you always have or will you surrender to Him?
