Our turn


Many generations have come before us. Many peoples have risen and fallen. Many people have made their choices and suffered the consequences. It’s our turn. What will we do? Will be loyal to God? Will we be brave, and wise, or cowardly and foolish?

All throughout history people have been given the options of following God, or trekking their own path. God gave us free will, so we have to decide. But history also shows that rebellion against God does not turn out well.

We could be a generation of selfless heroes, willing to take the risks to follow God. Or we could be a generation of selfish cowards who follow the crowd for their own gain. Who will we be?

History has shown that humans united under one cause can accomplish nearly anything. But that is only possible when each individual determines to get something done. That means that we can’t sit on the sidelines doing nothing.

Either our generation will raise a rebellious fist at God, and we stay silent because of the opposition, or we will determine to follow Him in the face of all odds and watch God change the tide.

It’s our turn. It’s up to us to decide. No one else can do it for us. Each of us must decide who we will serve. We are responsible for our choice, and it will impact everyone around us.

It only takes one person to change the world, for good, or bad. It’s our turn. God has given us this opportunity to change the world. What are we going to do? Now is the time to decide.

Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one! You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your strength. -Deuteronomy 6:4-5

 I call heaven and earth as witnesses today against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing; therefore choose life, that both you and your descendants may live; that you may love the Lord your God, that you may obey His voice, and that you may cling to Him, for He is your life and the length of your days; and that you may dwell in the land which the Lord swore to your fathers, to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, to give them.” -Deuteronomy 30:19-20
