Ever made a mistake, or a wrong choice? Of course you have. We all have. Many times we are reluctant to admit it though, because of our pride. Life is all about choices and, unfortunately, we don’t always make the right ones.

Sometimes we have to live with the choices we make, and sometimes terrible consequences come from wrong choices. But thankfully, sometimes we can go back and fix things, and hopefully, learn a lesson and move on.

I remember a song about choices from years ago. In fact that was the name of the song; “CHOICES.” It was written by Billy Wayne Yates and Michael A. Curtis. It went something like this,

“I’ve had choices Since the day that I was born
There were voices That told me right from wrong
If I had listened I wouldn’t be here today
Living and dying With the choices I made”

Simple words, but so full of meaning, and they probably reflect the feelings of many of us who have made bad choices in our lives.

The most important choice we’ll ever make is whether or not to follow Jesus. That choice will determine whether or not we receive eternal life or burn in hell fire, and yes, we do have to choose. Jesus said, He who is not with me is against me (Matthew 12:30).” If we don’t choose Jesus we are rejecting him. He said he is the only way to be saved, but the choice is ours (John 14:6).

Many people are planning to give their life to God and be saved, but they keep putting it off for one reason or another. It’s human nature to put off decisions that cause big change like this one does. I’ve talked to some who are trying to become better people before they approach God and ask for salvation. Believe it or not, some are even waiting until the tribulation comes.

Don’t wait! Tomorrow may be too late. Life is so unsure. James 4:14 says, “For what is your life? It is just a vapor, that appears for a little time, and then vanishes away.”

Every day, people die. Many of them had great plans for their future, but they die without notice, never even coming close to realizing their dreams and plans. Don’t let that be you. Make the right choice now, while you still have time.

The last verse of that song says,

“I guess I’m payin’ For the things that I have done
If I could go back Oh, Lord knows I’d run
But I’m still losin’ This game of life I play
Living and dying With the choices I made”

Don’t let that be your story. Don’t live your life with regrets. Don’t die without knowing Jesus. Don’t die without being born again. Repent of your sins and Jesus will forgive you. 1 John 1:9 says, “If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.” Romans 10:9 says, “if you confess the Lord Jesus with your mouth, and believe in your heart that God has raised him from the dead, you will be saved.”

Turn away from sin and be saved. It’s the only way. There are only two choices; Jesus and eternal life, or Satan and eternal death.
Today is the day of salvation (2 Corinthians 6:2). We are not promised tomorrow (James 4:13-14). Make the choice today.
