Choose Life!

God has a plan for your life.  
For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.  Jeremiah 29:11 (NIV)

SALVATION is part of God's plan; God wants us to be SAVED from sin and its effects.  In order to be SAVED, we must repent of our sins (turn from our sinful ways) and receive (accept) Jesus Christ as the Lord of our lives.  (Romans 10:9-10)  This is where TRUE LIVING begins!

We are given the power of CHOICE!  "Today I have given you the choice between life and death, between blessings and curses. Now I call on heaven and earth to witness the choice you make. Oh, that you would choose life, so that you and your descendants might live!  Deuteronomy 30:19 (NLV)

In His love, He wants each of us to CHOOSE LIFE, that we may live in eternity with Him. This is His desire, but again, it is our choice!  (2 Peter 3:9)  It is up to us to accept Him as Lord and Savior of our lives.

If you are going from day to day just existing . . . living in the mundane . . . not enjoying a full relationship with Jesus Christ, let me tell you, you don’t have to live that way. The Bible says in John 10:10 that “the thief comes only to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. But Jesus comes to give you life, and life more abundant.”

God has a GREAT PLAN for your life! 
CHOOSE to BELIEVE in HIM, ACCEPT Him as your personal SAVIOR, turn from your sinful ways and “walk in a manner worthy of the Lord, to please Him in all respects, bearing fruit in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God.”  Colossians 1:10

Don't mess YOUR LIFE up by NOT choosing Him!  "CHOOSE LIFE" each and every day, His life!  Real life doesn’t exist outside of Christ.

Life in Christ is a life of ABUNDANCE, a life of FREEDOM, a life of TRUE LIVING!  “For he who finds Me finds life and obtains favor from the Lord. But he who sins against me injures himself; all those who hate Me love death.”  Proverbs 8:35-36

Satan’s job is to make you miserable. He wants to steal your happiness and peace, kill your joy and you, and destroy your life.  We have been given authority over Satan in the name of Jesus! (Luke 10:19)

CHOOSE LIFE!  It is there for the taking, receive it.  Choose life and then LIVE IT!

CHOOSE LIFE - ABUNDANT LIFE - a life filled with PEACE, JOY & HOPE....with Jesus!

Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, and into an inheritance that can never perish, spoil or fade -- kept in heaven for you, who through faith are shielded by God's power.  1 Peter 1:3-5
