Be careful to follow every command I am giving you today, so that you may live and increase and may enter and possess the land that the LORD promised on oath to your forefathers.
(Deuteronomy 8:1 (NIV))
Do you believe that the world truly follows the commands of God?
Perhaps I should ask that question in a different way!
Do you believe that the world rebels against the commands of God?
Do you follow the world’s leading or do you follow God?
It is rapidly coming to the point in time when following God is wrong in the eyes of the world. No matter what the world may say, keep your eyes focused on Jesus. Keep running the race to win the prize!
Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles, and let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us. Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy set before him endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. Consider him who endured such opposition from sinful men, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart.
(Hebrews 12:1-3 (NIV))
It is time to make a choice! Choose God!
