'We Choose LIFE!'

Deuteronomy 30:10-20 NAS
...OBEY the Lord your God to KEEP His commandments and His statutes which are written in this Book of the Law...TURN to the Lord your God with all your heart and soul.

“For this commandment which I command you today is not too difficult for you, nor is it out of reach. It is not in heaven, that you should say, ‘Who will go up to heaven for us to get it for us and make us hear it, that we may observe it?’ Nor is it beyond the sea, that you should say, ‘Who will cross the sea for us to get it for us and make us hear it, that we may observe it?’ But the Word is very near you, in your mouth and in your heart, that you may observe it.

“See, I have set before you today life and prosperity, and death and adversity; in that I COMMAND you today to love the Lord your God, to walk in His ways and to keep His commandments and His statutes and His judgments, that you may live and...that the Lord your God may bless you in the land …

But if your heart turns away and you will not obey, but are drawn away and worship other gods and serve them, I declare to you today that you shall surely perish. You will not prolong your days in the land...

I call heaven and earth to witness against you today, that I have set before you life and death, the blessing and the curse. So choose life in order that you may live, you and your descendants, by loving the Lord your God, by obeying His voice, and by holding fast to Him; for this is your life...

Lord Jesus: make us a body of Believers who increasingly DO this “not too difficult” command: to “OBEY the Lord your God to KEEP His commandments and His statutes which are written in this Book of the Law...(to) TURN to the Lord your God with all (our) heart and soul,” to “love the Lordyour God, to walk in His ways and to keep His commandments and His statutes and His judgments, that (we) may live.” We ask this because we “choose LIFE”—we know “He who believes in the Son has eternal life; but he who does not obey the Son will not see life, but the wrath of God abides on him” (John 3:36).

Help us constantly and increasingly “chose life” Lord—to love You, walk in Your ways, obey Your voice, and hold fast to You—every moment of every day...

AMEN!!!
