A couple was selling a farm. In a meeting with their attorney, the wife was asked, “Did you sign this deed of your own free will? Did your husband in any way coerce you to sign these papers?”

“Him?” she asked. “I’d like to see him try to coerce me.”

Life is full of choices. We choose our spouses, our careers, our friends, our hobbies and where we live. But above all of those choices is choosing who we will serve with our lives. The supreme choice we all must make is whether or not we will serve God. Throughout Scripture God has challenged everyone to walk with Him and become one of His children by faith and His grace. However, He has never dragged an unwilling heart into His kingdom. He may bring unwelcome events into our lives to get our attention, but in the final analysis, we must decide for Him or against Him. Though we may have turned away from Him in the past, He is waiting for us to come to Him right now. The choice is ours!

Prayer: Lord, of all the decisions I make in life, choosing You to become my Lord and Savior is the most important. May I this day surrender my life completely to You, have an open heart and willingly dedicate all that I am and have to You. In Christ’s Name. Amen.

Scripture for Today: Joshua 24:15
