My entry: Choose Your Own Adventure
Life is an adventure.
Did you ever read those ‘Choose Your Own Adventure’ books when you were younger. You know, the ones where you got to the bottom of the page and had to choose what the characters would do next?
Well, life is very much like that. Every day, multiple times a day we have to choose our own adventure. We make choices and in doing so define the adventure that we take.
Some of us are distinctly unadventurous and make the ‘safe’ choices constantly making the adventure of life a rather boring one.
Others of us seem to always choose the most dangerous, most risky path and write an adventure worthy of a blockbuster movie.
Either way, it’s an adventure.
It Gets Even Better With Christ
When we make the choice to accept the free salvation that God offers us through Jesus Christ, the adventure of life can get even better.
Why is it better with Christ? – Because our adventure changes from one which define all by ourselves to one where we can stop choosing our own adventure and choose to follow the adventure that the Creator of the universe has mapped out for us.
When God defines our adventure, we walk a path that has eternal significance, eternal impact. It might not always be ‘fun’ or easy but it is always worth it!
What could be better than going on an adventure created just for you by Almighty God?
… of course, all too often we continue to choose our own adventure, and in doing so, we miss out on so much!
Which adventure will you choose today?
