Choose God

When I was a child, I went to a one-room country school. During recess time, we played outside. Often we would play baseball. The first thing we had to do was choose whose team we wanted to be on. Everyone wanted to be on the side with the best players.

In our Bible verses, Paul tells us that God has chosen us to be saved. “He chose you by using the Good News that we told you. You were chosen so that you can share in the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ” (verse 14b). God has chosen us to be His children, but we must accept His gift of salvation and choose to follow Him.

In Acts, chapter 2, some people heard Peter preach about Jesus. They wanted to know how they could accept salvation through Jesus. In verse 38a Peter said, “Change your hearts and lives and be baptized, each one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ.” 

I hope you will choose to obey and serve God today.
