Today at Jump Start we taught about Choices
Because the initial battle for my soul has already been won by God 2000 years ago it has become a done deal in my life. There are many stories of fought battles over unbelief that were won in my life with the help of God. Now the battles have moves to secure the abundant life God has already given me.
It is tempting to feel safe and secure in what God has done in our lives and to forget that we must continue to fight to gain the life he wants for us. Now that I have chosen Christ my choice aren’t as important any more. Joshua knew about that temptation to want to relax our stand for God. And he warned Israel to stay focused. Joshua presented Israel with a bold choice. And it’s a choice we are asked to make every day: choose God or choose other gods.
At DCC we teach the Choices have Consequences. The choice we make is played out in the hundreds of decisions we make on a daily basis. Those decisions determine the destiny of our stated priorities. And they ultimately determine which direction our lives will go. God give us the freedom to choose: whom will you serve?
“But if serving the Lord seems undesirable to you, then choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve… But as for me and my household, we will serve the Lord.”
Having campers here this week from the archdiocese of Corpus Christi has been a blast! We have mass everyday and the voices singing along during Team Meeting are louder than the music. It is truly a blessing to see God work through these campers lives and hear their stories. We may not all be the same denomination, but we all serve one King.
