At any rate... I had chased her out of the office in the house for like the 8th or 9th time while ago and I decided to pop in a CD to try to get my mind and attitude squared on the Lord, and I chose a CD of a friend whom I went to college with, Stephen Howard Wright. I was writing a couple of letters that needed to be sent out and suddenly the words to one of Steve's songs jumped out at me. They are powerful. I want to share them here:
Some say life is just a series of decisions
We make choices, We live and learn.
Now I'm standing at a crossroads
And I must choose which way to turn.
Down the one road lies all the world can offer
All its fortune its wealth and fame
Down the other is just a man with nail scars in His hands
But there is mercy in his eyes and there is power in His Name.......
I choose Jesus , I choose Jesus
Without a solitary Doubt I choose Jesus.
Not for miracles, but for loving me.
Not just for Bethlehem but for Calvary
Not for a day but for Eternity
I choose Jesus.
The words of this song beg the question: Who do you choose... and why? The reality is that we make this choice every day of our lives. I question sometimes, how many choose Jesus simply because of what they might receive? It seems that some folks are trying to "use" Jesus.
I won't labor the point... but I'm curious...
Whom shall you choose?
