Which Side Will You Choose?
Friends, God uses prophetic voices like Ezekiel’s to tell us about events that are going to happen—He literally tells us what is going to happen before it happens. Today’s news seem like they are being ripped directly from the Bible. God has told us these things will happen and we see, right in the news that they are continuing to happen.
He has a question for you—what are you going to do about it?
You might be one of three types of people who are reading this Blog article:
First you may be the person who never in their life has met Jesus Christ. Maybe you went to church, maybe you didn’t, but along the way you never truly met Jesus. You didn’t know there was passion and life available to you. You didn’t know that God loves you so much that He gave His only son for you. You’re looking at world events and your questioning and searching for more than just what you can find here on earth. You are in the “valley of decision and you’re trying to make up your mind for Jesus or against Jesus.
The second group is the undecided. If you are in this group I’m going to be open and candid with you—to be undecided is to be decided. Jesus said, “He who is not with Me is against Me (Matthew 12:30).” There is no middle ground.
The third group of people has met Jesus at some point. It was real and you walked with Him for some amount of time. But, something happened—whatever happened or didn’t happen you find yourself in a place where you are not walking with Him. Your head and your heart are full of doubt. You are caught up in things you never thought you’d be doing. You are what the Bible calls, “backslidden.” You have wandered from the fold. You are a prodigal and you wonder if you can come home.
Whichever group you are in, you’ve got a decision to make, friend. You need to make a decision for Jesus. You are not reading this by mistake. The Bible says, “I have loved you with an everlasting love; Therefore with lovingkindness I have drawn you (Jeremiah 31:3).” Today, right this minute, God wants to forgive you and make your sin that is as red as crimson, as white as wool. He wants to cleanse you from top to bottom, inside and out. He wants to draw you to His loving arms. You just have to make a decision for Him.
I can tell you that there is the grace and mercy of a loving Father who is ready to put a robe on your back, a ring on your finger, and sandals on your feet and throw a party if you will return (Luke 15:11–32). But, you’ve got to choose! Don’t fool around. The great preacher Charles H. Spurgeon said, “Brethren, do something, do something, do something!” 
Friend, make a decision. Say, “yes” to Jesus. He is waiting!
