Truly, truly, I say to you, whoever hears my word and believes him who sent me has eternal life. He does not come into judgment, but has passed from death to life. (John 5:24, ESV)
Life or death? Peace or wrath? Christ or self? The decision is ours to make. God gave us the free will that we may be able to demonstrate our love to Him freely. A machine shows no love. But the downside of free will is that the creation may not choose the Creator. But God was willing to take that risk.
Prayer: Lord, I choose you.
