One Decision

In the grand scheme of life, a mist that appears for a little while and then vanishes (James 4:14), there really is only one decision that truly matters. 


It’s not where you go to college.  It’s not which career path you should take.  It’s not who you choose for a spouse. 

It matters more than all of the other decisions you make in your entire life combined.  Yes, it is THAT important.  Even if you choose not to decide, you have made a decision.  

You can choose to believe all of the human teachings out there, everything from “There is no God” to “You are God” to “There is no Heaven or Hell” to “So long as I’m a good person I’ll be okay.”  OR, you can choose to believe The One Who Created Heaven and Hell And The Way To Get To Either Place. 

You can choose to believe that Jesus was a really great guy, even a prophet, or you can believe He is the Son of God, the Savior of Mankind.

But it’s not enough just to believe.  Even the demons believe Jesus is the Son of God, but He is not their Lord and Savior.  They haven’t surrendered their lives to him.   YOUR BELIEF ABOUT JESUS AND WHAT YOU DO WITH IT is the most important decision you will ever make in your entire life.  My friends, ETERNITY is at stake, here.  (BTW, I’ve read the travel brochures.  Heaven is WAAAAY better.  Just sayin’.)

If you confess with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.  Romans 10:9

Repent and be baptized, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins. And you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. Acts 2:38
