23 Apr Choose Life – 4/23/20
Proverbs 11:19 – “Whoever is steadfast in righteousness will live, but he who pursues evil will die.“
In this verse we see two choices of living with two completely different outcomes.
Option 1: Steadfast in righteousness equals life
This is someone who stands strong or firm in doing what is right and pleasing to God. This person knows who their Maker is and doesn’t want to disappoint Him. They seek the eternal reward knowing that it is greater than any temporary joy that they can get on this earth. This lifestyle will result in life.
Option 2: Pursuing evil equals death
This is someone who purposely knows what the right thing to do, yet completely ignores it. Putting aside from doing the right thing to get temporary joy in this world leads to a path of no life. This lifestyle will result in death.
So, knowing who our Maker is and what He has done for us in giving us eternal life, let us go forward with our day standing steadfast in righteousness. Let us be empowered by His Spirit to live in accordance to His will and bring Him the glory He deserves.
- Pray that we will be steadfast in righteousness and have strength to overcome the temptations of evil. fear. Pray for the salvation of entire people groups and believe that we will see many in eternity as a result of God’s sovereign and mighty work at this very moment.
