I tucked my kids to bed tonight.
We usually have devotions before they go to bed.
Our topic tonight was making major decisions.
I told them that in life, they will be making 3 major ones.
These are the 3 that I told them.
1. WHO WILL YOU SERVE?
Will you serve Jesus, self or the devil?
Joshua challenged God’s people, “choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve … But as for me and my household, we will serve the LORD.” (Joshua 24:15).
This is the first and most important decision you’ll ever make.
And this is one decision you cannot keep putting off. Remember, not deciding is a decision. You’ve decided not to accept Him into your life. We are either for Him or against Him. There’s no middle ground.
2. HOW WILL YOU SERVE?
I told my kids that they will have to make a decision how they’ll serve Jesus.
It doesn’t necessarily mean being in full-time ministry as a pastor or a missionary because you can serve Him wherever you are – in athletics, the arts, banking, insurance industry… as in WHEREVER.
Serving Him is not a matter of location but posture of the heart.
3. WITH WHOM WILL YOU SERVE HIM?
I told them that this will be a million years from now. Haha!
But I did say that they will get married one day and making this decision of with whom they’ll serve Jesus with is a critical one.
So I laid my hands on them and prayed for their future spouses – that as early as now, God would prepare the person they’ll spend the rest of their lives with as much as God is preparing them too.
But again, that will still be a million years from now.
