A Choice

Jun 18, 2024

But as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord. Joshua 24:15b

Here is the thing.

Jesus lived and died.

He said what He said. “I am the resurrection and the life. Anyone who believes in me will live, even after dying. Everyone who lives in me and believes in me will never ever die.” John 11:25-26

And so we have a choice. Jesus was either:

  1. A lunatic: He believed what He said, but it was not true, in which case He was a certifiable lunatic.
  2. A liar: He was sane, but knowingly lied.
  3. Or He is everything He claimed to be: our Lord and Savior.

Nor can His claim to be God be rejected by saying He was simply a great moral teacher, but not the Son of God. A man who was merely a man, and said the sort of things Jesus said, would not be a great moral teacher. (1)

So here is your choice. Christianity, if false, is of no importance. But, if true, it is of infinite importance. The only thing it cannot be is moderately important. There is no middle ground. Love me or hate me, but spare me your indifference.

Which way for you and your house?

Today you are given the choice between life and death, between blessings and curses. …… Oh, that you would choose life. Deuteronomy 30:19

(1) C.S. Lewis
