Decisions

Decision is a conclusion or resolution reached after consideration on an important subject or issues. In other words, it is the process of making choices by identifying a decision, gathering information, and assessing alternative resolutions. Decision making, or lack thereof, is part of things we do daily. There is one vital decision you will make that will either make or destroy your destiny. Your final decision on this vital subject can either help you to achieve a glorious end and reign eternally with God or mighgt result into a sorrowful or shameful end, which is eternity in hell with Satan.

If I may ask, what’s your decision on this issue? What will you do with JESUS? Will you reject Him or accept Him?

There was a governor in the Bible, he was the governor of the Roman province of Judea, his name was Pontius Pilate. In Luke 23, it was written that he had a problem of indecision. A very indecisive man who allowed other people to make decisions for him. Even when it came to the matter of Jesus, when Jesus was brought before him for judgment based on false accusations, Pilate sought advice from the crowd before he made his final judgment. Unfortunately, the decision he eventually made was the wrong choice, it cost him his position and the good will of others. There’s another thing I’d like to point out here; know that your level of success and achievement depends greatly on previous choices you’ve had to make.

Leah Sharibu, a Nigerian teenager kidnapped by Boko Haram terrorist group in Nigeria had to make a choice to either choose Islam and live or confess Jesus and be killed. She chose to die for Jesus rather than live for Islam. Fortunately, that decision has kept her alive but she’s still in their custody until now. Although she chose death by confessing Jesus, she is being kept alive.

Demas, at one time, had been one of the Paul’s fellow workers in the ministry. But he eventually forsook Paul and made an alternative decision to go back to the world. Paul said in 2 Timothy 4:10: “For Demas hath forsaken me, having loved this present world, and is departed unto Thessalonica; Crescents to Galatia, Titus unto Dalmatia.” God does not force commitment on anyone, we have the right to count the cost and carefully consider the implications before committing ourselves to Him. A decision to be either born again and follow Jesus or to be uncommitted and serve Him without diligence lies on us. Today, I encourage you to make the right and best decision for your life and for the sake of your future. Choose God and you will have eternal life.
