Sept 01 – Freedom to Choose

voting machine On October 19th, there will be a General election in Canada. Political parties are fiercely competing to become the next government. Canadian voters will make their choice. It is a wonderful thing to have the freedom to choose, as we do in our democratic society, but which is not available in countries ruled by dictators. And the Bible tells us that God, the Creator of the universe offers all of us the freedom to choose regarding things eternal. In the Old testament, our Lord inspired Moses to write, “…I have set before you life and death… therefore choose life, that you…may live…” He also inspired Joshua to write, “Choose you this day whom you will serve.” In the New Testament we find Paul offering all a choice, with the invitation, “If you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus, and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes unto righteousness and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.”
