I am often frustrated with the amount of choices and options in the world. Please do not get me wrong, I am not saying that these are always bad things to have. When I shop at the grocery store it is very important that I have in my hand a list of the specific items needed. Without a list, I will find myself wandering and wondering which brand is best for me. Searching and contemplating, trying to avoid being another victim of “buyers remorse.”
Many of us are blessed and spoiled with the amount of options and choices that we have in this world, especially in this country. Whether it is a car lot, buffy restaurant, shoe store or an airline, we are free to make any decisions that best meet our needs. But the more options there are to choose from, the better chance we have of choosing wrong. This fact can be costly and or dangerous with consequences effecting our wallet or our health!
Does this include the long list of churches and religions? Yes it does! It would take the rest of my life to list all of the religious groups on the market right now. And we all have the freedom to pick and choose what we think is right for us. This fact can be costly and or dangerous with consequences effecting our soul salvation!
It is true that God has given us the free will to make many choices. However, when it comes to our soul being freed from sin and eternal damnation, He has given us one choice. This choice is His only Son Jesus Christ. There is nothing else on the market that has died on the cross for our sins, guaranteeing us that we will rise from the dead and go to Heaven just like He did.
Jesus said in John 14:6, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me.
When it comes to our soul salvation, the world will offer us many choices and options, but the bible tells us that Jesus is the only good choice. We cannot choose just anything on the shelf, for doing that could bring eternal remorse.
