Free to Choose

I am God, and there is no other; I am God, and there is none like me.  I make known the end from the beginning,  from ancient times, what is still to come. I say, ‘My purpose will stand,  and I will do all that I please.’  Isaiah 46:9-10

Our God, who is like no other, who is all-powerful, all-wise and all-loving, offers us the opportunity to enter into relationship with Him. He offers it to us in an incredible expression of grace and love.

He allows us to choose Him.  How can we NOT love a God like this? How can we not be grateful for His over-the-top, unfathomable gift of choice?

Open, giving, praising, living? or closed and grasping, grumbling, shriveling?
A spring-fed fount with sparkling flow? or a closed-in swamp, where slime-things grow?
My life, my choice; my choice, my life. God’s loving gift: a two-edged knife.

Life or death: the gift and responsibility of choice.
