Choices...

Choices. It’s really all about choices isn’t it? On November 4th you are going to have a choice. You will have the opportunity, privilege and responsibility to vote while exercising the freedom of democracy. What an awesome thing!
Over the past two weeks we’ve talked about Jesus For President and how we choose to cast that ballot everyday of our lives. We make the choice to follow Jesus by how we live, love and serve. We make the choice to follow Jesus by doing the right thing when no one else is watching. We make the choice to follow Jesus by allowing love to have the final answer, even when we don’t like the way that answer sounds.
The Bible says, “Choose life, so that you might live,” and when we vote for Jesus we are truly choosing a life that makes a difference. (Deuteronomy 30:19) We have to make choices right?
Check this out…even God makes choices. And here’s the thing that takes it to the next level in the Gospel of John when Jesus says, “I have chosen you out of the world.” (John 15:19) God chooses YOU! Right in the middle of where you are, God says, “I choose you!” God says, “I love you,” and God wants us to know that nothing we can do will ever change that choice.
What choices are you going to make?

Speak on it...
