the choice is ours

by max lucado

“You have been born again, not of perishable seed, but of imperishable, through the living and enduring word of God.”  1 Peter 1:23 NIV

We are free either to love God or not. He invites us to love Him. He urges us to love Him. He came that we might love Him. But, in the end, the choice is yours and mine. To take that choice from each of us, for Him to force us to love Him, would be less than love . . .

He leaves the choice to us.

>>> we are free to be led by the holy spirit and choose life or death. malice or charity. bitterness or kindness. anger or compassion. hate or love. he leaves the choice to us. choose wisely..one brings us closer to the holy and the other takes us a few steps away. but because of grace there is a new chance every day to come close. for that i’m grateful.
