He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. For by Him all things were created that are in heaven and that are on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers. All things were created through Him and for Him. - Colossians 1:15-16

Five Minute Friday - Choose

Each day I live
I have the opportunity to choose

Will I serve the Lord
Or will I serve myself

Will I yield and bend to the Lord’s will
Or will I be stiff necked and unbending

Will I seek the Lord
Or will I pursue my own interests

Will I love the Lord
Or will I love this world and things which are perishing

Will I invest my time reading God’s Word
Or will I waste time on the foolish things of this world

Will I come boldly before the throne of grace in prayer
Or will I choose to grumble and complain

Do I want to hear God’s commendation
Or do I desire man’s approval

Will I choose to glorify God in all things
Or will I seek to glorify myself

Each day I have the opportunity to choose
Choose this day Whom I will serve

We got a beautiful reminder of this reality today when my two oldest boys chose Jesus and got baptized! :)

Great post. A good one to print and read every day.
