imgres3At this moment, there are many of us who stand at the crossroads of life, where each of our situations and circumstances require a choice that takes us down a path that we either want to go down, or we have some reservations about the timing of making such a choice.

Do I go to college or take my chances in The Armed forces, do I get married or should I wait. But today as vessels, chosen by God, we are going to use our crossroads as a critical point in each of our lives as Christ second coming in our lifetime is becoming more of a reality than ever before.

Many of our decisions from day to day are trivial and irrelevant, but some are life-changing, but The most critical decision we will ever make in this short period of probation we have on this earth is our relationship with Christ, because such a life changing decision determines our eternal destiny.

In addition, it is when we get to that crossroad, Christ personally through His Spirit bids us to follow Him, while at the same crossroadscrossroad, the god of this world and his forces are also making their presentation “All this I will give you,’ …’if you will follow me.”

So today you have two roads, one leading to our Savior Jesus Christ and life eternal and the other is leading toward “Babylon the great! a dwelling place of demons and a prison of every unclean spirit, and a prison of every unclean and hateful bird.”

In addition, choosing our Savior can be personally painful and difficult at times, because to choose Christ means making a sacrifice that changes our lives completely as we begin to confront ungodly attitudes, carnal living, and selfish motives from within that we must eliminate from our life.

Let’s take the rich young ruler in Matt 19 who had everything any human could possibly want but when he got to his crossroad and Christ tells him “If you want to be perfect, go, sell what you have and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven; and come, follow Me.

He made the choice, not today because “he had great possessions.” Matt 19:21-22 (NKJV) also he had a form of godliness but denied the presence of God, who was the one who stood before him and made the request.

My friends “the gate is wide and the way is broad that leads to destruction, and there are many who enter through it. For the gate peter_walking_on_wateris small and the way is narrow that leads to life, and there are few who find it. Matthew 7:13-14 (NASB)

On the outside the rich young ruler was a perfect Christian who kept all the commandments. But one he failed to keep, the first one, thou “shall have no other Gods before me, because he had made the things of this world his god.

Friends, the main point I would like  you to focus on today is the love and mercy of Christ in reaching as far as he did to pull us to Him when we were sinking deep in sin to bring us to our crossroad which allowed us to focus on God’s saving grace and the promises in His Word as we “seek first his kingdom and his righteousness,”

As we follow Christ down that narrow road, and if we have faith and endure till the end.” We will “experience life more abundantly and when Christ comes He will say “Well done, good and faithful servant! You choose the right road that lead to life eternal; I will now put you in charge of many things. Come and share your master’s happiness!” Matt. 25:23 (NIV)


So my friends today. Stay focused, remain faithful, love one another and endure till the end and never forget to STUDY&PRAY
